Firefighters donned cold suits to rescue a man from his sinking vehicle on the St. Croix River Feb. 3.
The Hudson Fire Department said that they received a call about a partially submerged truck at approximately 12:36 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 3. The driver had hit an unsafe patch of ice north of the railroad swing bridge in North Hudson. The crew was able to determine the man's location from his cellphone.
Firefighters used a rescue rope to pull the man out of his vehicle and onto the banks of the St. Croix. St. Croix EMS checked the man for injuries, but it is unknown if he was in need of any additional medical treatment.
