A Westchester teenager’s body has reportedly been recovered following a freak snowmobile accident in New Hampshire.
Over the weekend , Wired2fish reported that 15-year-old Arthur Remy of Mamaroneck was one of three fishermen that died during the Meredith Rotary Club Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Winnipesaukee when their snowmobiles broke through the surface.
According to the report, Remy was fishing with his 48-year-old father - on two separate snowmobiles - when both machines fell through the ice. The father was rescued on Sunday morning while the search continued for his son, who was ultimately found in the lake more than 70-feet deep.
Two other snowmobilers reportedly died on the lake over the weekend, including a man celebrating his 62nd birthday. Several others suffered injuries and required treatment at a local hospital.
"Lake Winnipesaukee can be extremely unpredictable as far as ice depths," says Moultonborough Police Col. Kevin Jordan of New Hampshire Fish and Game told radio station WMUR . "We've always had this real concern that we'd have a day like today, and it's just horrible."
