The bodies of two ice fishermen were pulled from a Madison County pond Tuesday evening after a short search and rescue operation.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Department reports a call came in shortly after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday evening, reporting a possible water emergency at Camp Kikthawenund.
The caller reported two men were ice fishing on a frozen pond and it appeared that they had fallen through.
Dive teams from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Union Township Fire Department assisted with the search efforts. They eventually found and were able to recover the deceased bodies of the two men.
The Sheriff’s Department confirms that one of the men recovered was a Conservation Officer assigned to Madison County. He was not on duty at the time.
As of now, the identities of the two men is not being released until family notifications can be made.
