A 19-year-old Baileys Harbor woman was rescued by fire department personnel late Thursday afternoon after she fell through the ice on Kangaroo Lake. Mary Harty was conscious and up to her waist in the water around 5 pm when rescue personnel showed up, according to Baileys Harbor Fire Chief Brian Zak.
Zak estimates that the woman was in the water for about 15 minutes and did not need to be transported after receiving medical assistance at the scene. The Baileys Harbor Fire Department had just conducted ice water exercises two days prior to Thursday’s rescue.
