  DNR and St. Louis County rescue personnel help cold camper :crazy:


 :reporter; .....
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Sean Williams and members of the volunteer St. Louis County Rescue Squad on Saturday night rescued a man experiencing severe hypothermia in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA).
 Crrey Rommel, 34, of Elkhart, Indiana, was at a campsite on Nina Moose Lake, which is about 20 miles north of Ely.

 :cold: ......
 Rommel sent an emergency signal just before 5 p.m. Saturday. Rescue personnel, who were in a square-stern canoe with an outboard motor, arrived at Nina Moose Lake at about 8 p.m.
It was as dark as I’ve ever seen it out there,” Williams said. “You couldn’t see anything. :banghead: It was snowing heavily, fog was moving in, and there was ice on the lake. :bonk: We had to break through ice to get to the middle of the lake, and when we made it to the middle it was so dark we had to use a GPS to find the shore and his campsite.” :doah:

              Many BWCA Reports

If you help someone when they're in trouble, they will remember you when they're in trouble again

To many wannbe survival types out there. Practice in your own backyard not out in the wilderness area. This guy obviously got in way over his head. Hopefully everything turns out well for him.

Big shout out to the rescue team!  Takes a bunch of courage to go after somebody in those conditions.
