Two Osakis residents are OK after the ATV they were riding on Lake Osakis was found partially submerged in the lake.
On December 24, at 10:32 p.m., the Todd County Sheriff's Office received a call that an ATV had gone through the ice near Lindberg Point on Lake Osakis.
When deputies arrived, they found a Honda Foreman ATV had driven into a large pool of water made by a depression in the ice near an ice reef. The ATV was mostly submerged and tipped on its side, according to law enforcement.
The driver of the ATV, Mike Peterson of Osakis, was later found. He told authorities that he was leaving his fishhouse and didn't see the open water before sliding into it and rolling his ATV. He and his passenger, Michelle Remmers of Osakis, were not injured and the ATV was to be recovered the next day.
