Two men riding snowmobiles are rescued in Rock County.

At around 6:20 p.m. Saturday night, two people were out riding around on the snowmobiles when they went through the ice at Lake Koshkonong in Milton Township. When crews arrived the drivers of the snowmobiles were in about four to five feet of water.

Crews were able to make voice contact with 32-year-old Matthew Reilly of Edgerton and 32-year-old Timothy Willger also of Edgerton.

After 45 minutes they were rescued and transported to a nearby hospital for hypothermia.
