Two fall through ice on Grove Lake

Two men escaped injury after falling through the ice on a lake in Otter Tail County on Friday.

Colton Kellen, age 20, of Fargo, N.D., and Jacob Stevens, also age 20 and of Fargo, fell through the ice on Grove Lake after a night out ice fishing.

In a report from the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office, the men said there were 4-5 inches of ice where they were fishing, but that they became disoriented as they left and headed in the wrong direc-tion, away from their vehicle.

After falling through, Kellen and Stevens were able to get out of the water and make it to shore, but did not know where they were when they called 911, the report states. They were located on Grove Lake Road, cold but otherwise uninjured.

According to the report, the two were checked by Pelican Ambulance emergency personnel, but denied any further medical treatment.
