GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A 25-year-old woman remains in a Grand Rapids hospital after an off-road vehicle carrying four people fell through a hole in ice on a lake in western Michigan.

Emily Patin and 52-year-old Lee Avery were submerged in water Saturday after the vehicle he was driving slid into a hole cut earlier in the ice on Crystal Lake for a polar plunge. Avery died, and The Morning Sun (https://bit.ly/1oLIQXJ ) reports Patin arrived in Grand Rapids in critical condition after she began having seizures.

Patin was put in a medically-induced coma after the seizures became uncontrollable. Doctors started weaning her off the coma medicine early Wednesday morning, and family and doctors were waiting in the afternoon to see how her body would respond.

Community support has poured in, including donations.
