Skiier rescued at Pigeon Creek

A 72-year-old Spring Lake man and his daughter were cross-country skiing Monday morning at Pigeon Creek County Park when he began to feel ill.

She called 911 and two other skiiers boogied to to the lodge to inform park personnel of the man's collapse.

The park workers, who normally aren't there at that time of day, hooked up a sled to a snowmobile, and along with a sheriff's deputy, picked up the man about a quarter mile down the trail near the group camp area.

He was taken to the parking lot to a waiting ambulance, and transported to Mercy Hospital in Muskegon.



Tri-cities realist

The 2 other skiers were dancing?


boogied? really?


Becky doesn't hasten....Becky


That made me chuckle when I first read it. I use to say boogie all the time, but it was the 70's and I was young and foolish. Now, I'm just foolish. (Figured I better say it before someone else did.....) :-)
