The Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office reports a worker was injured over the weekend in Lake Hattie Township.
According to Sheriff Cory Aukes, the incident was around 2 p.m. Saturday when a piece of logging equipment fell through the ice trapping the operator inside.
Workers were able to rescue the victim, and he was transported by snowmobile to the awaiting North Country Ambulance, which took him to a clearing to be life-flighted to Essentia Health Hospital in Fargo.
Forty-five-year-old Roy Davis of South Carolina was logging in the area when he broke through a frozen area on the edge of the swamp.
Reports from other outlets appeared to have connected this incident to the Enbridge Line 3 construction,
Enbridge has not confirmed a connection to their work site, and the Northern Lights Task Force declined to comment.
