Mecosta Co. man dies after ice fishing accident

MECOSTA COUNTY — A Mecosta County man is dead after falling through the ice while fishing, officials said Tuesday.

Mecosta County deputies were called to Little Bass Lake on Monday night to try to rescue the man after his family couldn’t get him out of the water.

First responders were able to pull the man out, but they said he wasn’t breathing. They tried to resuscitate him but were unable to do so.

Deputies want to remind everyone that warm temperatures are making ice conditions unsafe across Northern Michigan.
