Just after 9pm on Thursday (December 15th), a 911 call came in regarding a male subject who had fallen through the ice while driving his Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) on Keyhole Reservoir, which is about 7 miles northeast of Moorcroft.

The 911 center was on the phone with the male subject who stated that he had made it out of the water and was laying on the ice.  

Pine Haven Fire and EMS service were paged and arrived on scene.  

At approximately the same time three local citizens arrived on scene and drove a UTV onto the ice.  

Witnesses stated that they lost sight of the UTV as it went out across the reservoir.

Rescue crews managed to locate and remove the originating subject from the ice.  

A second individual was also located and rescued.
