Some very close calls for a couple of ATV riders on Mount Desert Island. Eben Salvatore (33)of Mount Desert was riding on Long Pond about 7:30amSunday morning when his ATV broke through the ice and sank. Salvatore was able to jump off before it went under the water. Wardens say he was wet but he was able to walk back to shore. About 2 hours later Troy Lewis (45)of Bar Harbor broke through the ice on Eagle Lake while he was riding his ATV. He was also able to make it back to shore safely.
Wardens say anyone going out on ice needs to check for safety every time because the ice conditions are changing daily.
