CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (AP) - Weekend snowmobile races on Lake Wissota in Chippewa County were canceled after a bulldozer went through the ice.

Sheriff’s officials say Kirk Brown of Brown Excavation was using the bulldozer to get a race track ready for Saturday’s Pro Vintage race when the 10-ton bulldozer broke through the ice in 40 feet of water several hundred yards from shore.

WQOW-TV (https://bit.ly/1h3Cei2 ) says Brown jumped to safety just before the bulldozer sunk. The DNR says it will work with Brown to recover the bulldozer.
