Hunters rescued after stuck on island
Maryland Natural Resources Police say they broke through ice and faced rough seas to rescue two duck hunters that became stuck on an island in the Chesapeake Bay during severe weather.
The two men apparently left Rocky Point boat ramp at about 8 a.m. in a 14-foot aluminum boat but immediately took on water from rough seas.
The pair called 911 for help from the island.
Police say Todd Troxell, 40, of Codorus, Pa., was issued a citation for negligent operation.
He told officers he did not check weather reports before setting out on his trip.
