ESSEDXVILLE, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard says one of its airboats rescued an injured snowmobiler from the frozen Saginaw River.

The Coast Guard says the accident happened about 1 a.m. Sunday on the river near where it enters Lake Huron’s Saginaw Bay.

The agency says a woman called to say that her friend was lost and injured on the river. It says the man’s snowmobile flipped and he hurt his leg.

The Coast Guard says a 20-foot airboat from its Essexville station found the man and brought him back to the station, where emergency crews transported him to McLaren Bay Region Hospital in Bay City.
