The Coast Guard and Monroe County Sheriff were notified of people flashing lights on an ice floe at about 8 p.m.

It happened early Thursday morning near the Twin Cities Bicentennial Bridge in St. Joseph.

The crew reported the man was hypothermic.

Coast Guard Sector Detroit workers also responded to two cases where snowmobiles went through the ice, according to its Facebook page.

Crews arrived less than fifteen minutes later and were able to assist the man off the ice to EMS crews for evaluation.

A man was rescued from Mitchell's Bay on Lake St. Clair by the U.S. Coast Guard suffering from hypothermia after being on the lake ice for 12 hours.

The man was taken to the hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery. Officials say they got his position via cell phone ping and the OPP, Chatham-Kent police, and the Chatham-Kent Fire Department responded by land.

It was a perilous rescue as there was poor visibility due to fog.

The man was taken to the hospital in the US and returned to Canada. The helicopter rescued the two and took them to the Custer Airport, where they'll be taken to a nearby hospital for observation.
