DNR reports first snowmobile fatality in Wisconsin

by

HAYWARD, WI (WTAQ) - The first person to die in a Wisconsin snowmobile crash this winter has been identified as 55-year-old Steven Sisko – an owner of the Pine Point Resort at Hayward.

Authorities said his machine went through the ice on the Chippewa Flowage last Sunday afternoon.

He was reported missing early Monday, after he failed to return home from trapping.

A search began, and a helicopter crew saw a body in a hole on the flowage late Monday morning.

The Hayward Fire Department used an airboat to reach Sisko’s body.

The state DNR said Sisko was the first snowmobile victim this season.

Ten people died a year ago during a very mild winter with not a lot of snow.  Wisconsin had 17 snowmobile deaths the previous season in 2010-and-11 – and 21 deaths the year before that.
