A man was rescued from his sinking vehicle after it fell through the ice on the St. Croix River near North Hudson, Wisconsin.

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.
