The call came into the Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Office early Sunday – a 42-year-old man was asking for help, saying he was lost on Lake Winnebago.
Emergency responders found him about a quarter-mile off the shore and brought him to safety. Deputies say he passed out and was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for exposure. The man's name wasn't released. He had reportedly been drinking and wasn't wearing appropriate clothing for the cold weather when he went for a walk on the frozen lake surface.
