Snowmobiler pulled from Otter Tail Lake

A snowmobiler was pulled from open water on the north side of Otter Tail Lake early Sunday morning, said the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.

“The snowmobile was entirely submerged,” said Sheriff Office Lt. Matt McGuire. “A local resident was alerted to the incident, called 911 and pulled the victim from the water.”

The snowmobile’s driver, 42-year-old Todd Swenson of Fargo, escaped injury.

Another snowmobiler was nearby when the accident took place. That machine was then used to transport Swenson to a nearby residence.

The victim was evaluated by rescue workers and did not need further assistance.
