Posted at 7:22 AM

Two men from Rothschild were assisted Saturday morning and one was later cited after a 911 call reported a man had fallen into the Prairie River north of Merrill.

Deputies responded to Prairie Rd off of County Rd. C when a witness reported seeing a man across the river from his cabin fall into the water. The victim was not in danger but despite his friends help was having trouble getting out of the woods.

The Rec. Deputy responded to the scene and was able to use his snowmobile to ferry the two men out of the woods. There a Warden from the DNR waiting and cited one of the men for fishing without a license.
