Higgins Lake Ice “NOT SAFE” Please use caution on frozen area lakes

Gerrish Township Police, Fire, and EMS were dispatched to an ATV that fell through the ice of Higgins Lake near Detroit Point today (02/26/2016).  Officers would like to remind area citizens to be very careful and use caution while venturing out on area frozen lakes.  The subject involved in this incident was very lucky to be in a shallow area and was not injured.  Officers learned from a fisherman in the area that two snowmobiles had went into the water in this same location yesterday.
