BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Mercer County officials used an air boat to rescue a Beulah man whose pickup fell through the ice at Lake Sakakawea.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1f3NbKA ) that 57-year-old Duane Otto was plucked from atop the partially submerged pickup on Friday night.

Otto says warm temperatures on Friday may have caused the ice conditions to weaken.

Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danzeisen says county rescue personnel are evaluating whether it’s possible to retrieve Otto’s pickup from the big lake.
