WATCH: Boat Load of Help Removing Truck That Fell Through Ice on NH Lake
GILFORD — A truck that fell through the ice on Lake Winnipesaukee on Friday has been removed.
It took a team to tow the truck out of the water at Glendale Docks on Monday.
A video taken by Timothy Lacey shows the pickup truck slowly being pulled from the water as a team of five people attempts to get it out.
According to U.S. Army Cold Regions Research & Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, for a person to travel on the ice by foot, there should be at least 6 inches of ice. If you have a snow machine or all-terrain vehicle, it should be at least 8 inches thick.
"It is imperative that you personally check the ice thickness on a waterbody as you venture out on foot or before riding out on a snowmobile or off-highway recreational vehicle,” said Capt. Dave Walsh, who coordinates off-highway recreational vehicle enforcement and Safety Education for Fish and Game.
