Detroit (TIP): A 25-year-old American man was rescued by the US Coast Guard after he tried to walk from Detroit to Canada across a frozen lake, officials said on Mar 12. The man was found on Mar 11 on Lake St. Clair, which borders the United States and Canada, about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from shore by a lookout assigned to the Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay, a 140-foot ice-breaking tug, the Coast Guard said.

“He was suffering from hypothermia and disoriented,” said Chief Petty Officer Lauren Jorgensen, a Coast Guard spokeswoman.
