A CTV cameraman is credited with spotting a man who had driven his vehicle onto the ice on Lac St. Louis and then fell in.
Stephane Gamache found the 27 year old floating between Pointe aux Cascades and Ile Perrot around 6 am Sunday, after his truck plunged through the ice.
Fortunately, the driver was rescued by Surete du Quebec divers and Beauharnois firefighters.
He was taken to hospital and treated for hypothermia.
Charges of impaired driving will be filed against him.
