BARRIE, ONT. -- A snowmobiler was rushed to hospital Sunday afternoon after breaking through ice in Penetanguishene.

Patty Crane lives nearby and captured video of the rescue, and of emergency responders performing CPR on their way back to shore near McArthur Drive.

The fire department says the snowmobiler was taken to Georgian Bay General Hospital but could not offer any update on their condition.

The incident stunned Crane.

"It was absolutely open water. I don't understand how anyone could be snowmobiling at that time," she said.
