Local authorities responded to their second ice rescue this week in Duluth.

The emergency happened at Boy Scout Landing just after 4 p.m. Friday.

The victim, 46-year-old Bert Stadin of Duluth, started driving onto the St. Louis River when his SUV broke through the ice about 100 feet from shore, according to authorities.

His vehicle went under about six feet of water.

Stadin told police he was “testing the ice.”

He was not injured.

Authorities say alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident.

Rescue crews saved four people from Lake Superior’s Uncle Harvey’s Mausoleum on Tuesday after they walked out onto the ice and a woman fell through.
