NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WJMN) – On Monday, April 5th the structure used for the Teal Lake Melt-Down competition sunk.
The structure was placed on the ice as part of a fundraiser benefiting the Negaunee Lions Club and the Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce. Members of the community could purchase tickets to guess when the structure would break the ice.
Bob Hendrickson, the Executive Director of Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce said, “We’re in the final stage of the Teal Lake Melt-Down. We’re going to recover the unit or the structure out of the lake. The Marquette County search and rescue is on-site that will deploy the boat and will use it as a training exercise to retrieve the structure.”
For the search and rescue team this was the perfect chance to refine their rescuing skills.
Sheriff Greg Zyburt said, “If a car goes down in a river or over a cliff and into the water, it’s a very specific type of training and it just helps them get better at it.”
