TOWN OF TRENTON – Sheriff’s Deputies rescued a man from a lake in Dodge County after he drove his ATV into open water. It happened early Saturday morning on Beaver Dam Lake in the Town of Trenton.

Officers used a thermal imaging camera to locate the man in the water north of a landing at Hickory Point Road. The man had driven his four-wheel all terrain vehicle off the ice and into open water. When they located the man, he was standing on the submerged ATV attempting to keep his head above the water.

Rescue workers along with a nearby neighbor used a roped flotation device to pull the man out of the water. He was taken to an area hospital.
