Two Austin, Minn. men went through the ice on Dead Lake Tuesday evening.

Andrew Swank, 26, and Dallas Williamson, 24, were traveling across the lake on their snowmo-bile, pulling a portable fish house, when the vehicle tipped into open water.

Williamson, who was riding on the back of the snowmobile, was able to swim to the surface and climb out of the water, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's office.

The two men ran to their cabin and called authorities. The incident occurred on the southwest side of the lake.
