The SUV dropped about 50 feet and got stuck nose first in the ice below.

One person was able to get out of the car on his own and call 911. A second person was rescued shortly afterwards. The Saginaw County Sheriff's department tells NBC25 the driver was taken to the hospital. The condition of the passenger is unknown at this time.

Rescue crews hooked cables to the car and were able to haul it back up over the bridge.
