This is the first time it’s ever happened to us,” he admitted.Birmingham said using past training is what saved him and his friend’s life. Birmingham and his passenger suffered no injuries.The 30–year–old said this weekend’s accident won’t stop him from going ice fishing but may have him think twice about taking a car out on the lake.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Santa Extravaganza Brings Christmas Cheer to Downtown AlpenaNext Man Dies in Snowmobile Accidentlast_img
