Two men needed to be rescued tonight after running into trouble while ice fishing near the Argentia Access Road.
The men became stranded when their ATV broke through some deep snow and became stuck about 3 kms south of Nine Island Pond.
Once it became obvious they couldn’t free the machine, they started to walk out of the woods toward the road.
With the temperature hovering around zero and extremely difficult terrain, they had to call for help.
At approximately 6:30 pm, a team of Avalon North Wolverines located the fishermen in good condition and helped them make it out of the woods.
The ATV was also located and pulled out with an ARGO.
