Chesapeake Shares More About Man Rescued by Their Employees on Atwood Lake

From Chesapeake Energy:
Gene Scott had fished Atwood Lake in Sherrodsville, Ohio, thousands of times in his life. The 47-year-old even claimed the catfish fishing championship on that lake. But tragedy nearly struck on February 7, 2013, before three quick-thinking Chesapeake employees saved the day.
“I got to the lake around 7 o’clock that day,” Scott said. “It was about 30 degrees out. The temperature had dropped into the mid-teens overnight. The first thing I did was start cutting holes in the ice to see how thick it was. Four inches seemed pretty good.”
Around the same time, across the road and up on a hill about a quarter mile away, ATS title analysts Jason Rickman, Jim Ray and Tyler Trammell were heading out the door of the Atwood Lodge on their way to nearby Carrollton to continue work on digitizing land records at the Carroll County Genealogical Society.
