BAZETTA - A local man escaped injury when he fell through the ice at Mosquito Creek Reservoir near Hillside Cemetery while ice fishing this afternoon.
Bazetta fire officials said the man, whose name or age was not available, was attempting to walk back to land when the ice cracked beneath him, he slipped and fell into the water.
Officials said he had already pulled himself out of the water when rescue crews arrived just before 1:30 p.m. They said he did not receive any medical treatment at that time, but they did not know whether he intended to seek any on his own later.
