ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A fisherman's truck had to be pulled out of a lake in Omro, Wisconsin, after it plunged through a crack in the ice. "We got about two feet of water out there...it's not really real bad but there is damage to the truck, so it's probably done," said Dick Schutz, who was 100 yards from shore with his dog at the time. It is becoming a more common occurrence as rising temperatures slowly melt the ice. "In the last couple of days we've pulled out three or four," said Don Herman, owner of Sunk? Dive and Ice Service, which specializes in recovering sunken vehicles. Residents watched as the truck was towed from the lake. "It's getting to be the time you shouldn't be driving a truck on the ice - maybe a four wheeler or snowmobile yet, but not a truck," said local resident, Dave Reimer.
