From the Detroit Free Press:
_Three teens whose boat motor died while they were duck hunting Sunday afternoon on the Detroit River were rescued from frigid weather by Grosse Ile firefighters who floated to them on a 600-horsepower airboat.
_The three . . . were hunting while standing on ice, using the boat to recover birds they shot, said [Dan] Conrado, whose sons Weston, 17, and Ethan, 14, were with an 18-year-old friend.
__When their motor quit at about 1:30 p.m. and stranded them 100 yards offshore. . . they paddled to an ice sheet and pulled the boat onto it.
The three teens clambered onto the ice and started to walk to shore but rescue personnel alerted by a resident who called 911 told them to stay in the boat until they arrived.
