Resort owner dies in equipment accident

CRIVITIZ, Wis. (AP) -- Sheriff's authorities say the co-owner of a northern Wisconsin resort has died in an accident on his property.

Paramedics were called to the Timberline Resort near Crivitz Wednesday afternoon after a skid steer loader fell on top of Paul Milquet. Deputies say the 60-year Milquet was doing maintenance on the equipment when it crushed him.

Family members were able to free Milquet, but he was later pronounced dead at a Green Bay hospital. Marinette County Coroner George Smith has ruled the death accidental.
