Guide dies when snowmobile falls in Lake Superior

DULUTH, Minn. -

A fishing guide has died after his snowmobile went through the ice on Lake Superior off Bayfield, Wis.

The Ashland County Sheriff's Office said 34-year-old James Hudson of Bayfield broke through in the channel between Long Island and the mainland.

Authorities received the call shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday. The U.S. Coast Guard said a bystander may have tried to pull Hudson from the water, but kept falling through the ice. Rescue crews pulled Hudson from the lake about a half-hour later. He was pronounced dead at a Duluth hospital.

The Duluth News Tribune said Hudson guided anglers year-round on Lake Superior. His wife garnered worldwide attention last summer for a picture she took of a man and his elderly dog resting in Lake Superior on a summer day.
