ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) A fundraiser is being held this Sunday for a Sartell man who was rescued November 15th after falling through thin ice on Little Rock Lake.

It took rescue crews close to an hour to pull 30 year-old Josh Johnson out of the water. He's been hospitalized since then. He was initially taken to St. Cloud Hospital, but was transferred, and is currently in the intensive care unit at the University of Minnesota's Fairview Medical Center.

His sister-in-law--Amanda Webb--says, "he's been battling heart, lung and kidney problems. Basically every major organ." But she adds, "he has made tremendous improvement."

A fundraiser for Josh is being held Sunday at the Medina Entertainment Center. Doors open at 4:00 p.m. There will be a silent auction and a pro wrestling card featuring wrestlers with the French Lake Wrestling Association. Tickets are $15 each. Webb says 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Josh and his family. 

Josh is married. He and his wife have two children, with another child on the way.
