A Maine man died in the state's first fatal snowmobile crash this season on Saturday, according to the game warden's office.
Bryan Sylvester, 57, of Long Pond, went for a snowmobile ride around 2 p.m.and was found dead at 7:45 p.m. following a search by game wardens.
Sylvester had driven about one-and-a-half miles from his home onto Long Pond near Parlin Stream where it appears he struck a large snow drift, according to the game wardens.
Sylvester was killed when he was ejected from his snowmobile onto a very uneven ice surface. He was not wearing a helmet.
Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber
A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.
According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
