Man dies after falling through ice in Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County sheriff's office says a 23-year-old man has died after falling through ice at the McKinley Marina on Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee.

Authorities say the man was taking photos with his girlfriend when the accident happened.

A Milwaukee Fire Department dive rescue team pulled him from the water after about 20 minutes. Emergency personnel worked to revive him and transferred him to Froedtert Memorial Hospital, but he was pronounced dead just before 3:30 p.m. Monday.

The man's name was not immediately released. An investigation continues.
