      Snowmobiler saved by bystanders after falling through ice


      A snowmobiler was saved by bystanders after falling through the ice in Montcalm County.


      It happened Saturday at 3:53pm on Crystal Lake.


      David Johnson, 51, of Woodland, went through the ice in about 20 feet of water. A rope was thrown by witnesses and pulled Johnson to safety.


      Rescue crews called to the scene say Johnson was in the water for a few minutes. He was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.


      Arrangements are being made to have the snowmobile brought up from the lake bottom.
