Sodus Point, N.Y. – Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters from the Sodus Point and Alton Fire Departments rescued a man who fell through ice Thursday.

Deputies say 75-year-old Richard Crombach was attempting to cross Sodus Bay on a snowmobile when he fell through the ice.

Crombach was taken to Newark Wayne Hospital for hypothermia, but was otherwise unhurt.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office asks the public to stay off the ice because it is unpredictable and unsafe.
