Today’s Blog is going to be a little bit different. Some of you who are my close friends may have heard that Chad’s stepbrother, Michael Lange died tragically Sunday night after his vehicle rolled over into a muddy lake. He was 46 years old with a wife and a teenage daughter. Below you will find a link to the website reporting the incident on Minnesota news and an interview with Chad’s stepsister Bridget. Mike was driving on Sunday evening and his truck was found overturned into a muddy lake, he was rescued but unfortunately he passed away at the hospital an hour after being rescued as he had a faint heartbeat. We are unsure at this time how his truck ended up in the muddy lake but can only guess that he swerved due to ice as the weather in Minnesota is similar to the weather here lately and on a dark road with no lighting it seems like this is probably the cause.

VADNAIS HEIGHTS, Minn. — A 46-year-old man has died after his truck overturned into the icy waters of Lake Vadnais.
A spokesman for the Ramsey County sheriff’s office, Randy Gustafson, says Michael Lange of Vadnais Heights was trapped in the truck for about 10 minutes until a deputy opened the door of the submerged truck and cut his seat belt off Sunday night.
Deputy Todd Kramer was the first on the scene and removed Lange from the frigid water.
Lange had no pulse but first responders restored it before he was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.
The Minnesota State Patrol and Ramsey County are investigating the accident, but Gustafson tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press Saturday’s snow could have been a cause.
