Maine game wardens said a Massachusetts man survived being trapped under an overturned snowmobile for 20 hours. Searchers found Paul Lessard, 64, of Milford, on Wednesday morning underneath his overturned snowmobile in a ditch with running water in St. John Plantation, near the Canadian border. Wardens determined that Lessard had been trapped since the previous day. They said he was conscious but showing signs of hypothermia following a frigid night with snow squalls. He was taken to Northern Maine Medical Center and then transferred to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor where he was listed in fair condition.
