Teen dies after breaking through ice in Oshkosh


OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Police say a 15-year-old boy has drowned after he and another teen broke through the ice on a quarry in Oshkosh.

Authorities say the boys were walking on the ice at the Zillges Materials quarry about 6 p.m. Monday when they broke through. One of the teens was able to get out of the water and run to a nearby home to get a parent of one of the boys. The Oshkosh dive rescue team responded and pulled the other boy from under the water. He was rushed to Aurora Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Winnebago County coroner has determined the teen's death is an accidental drowning. The boy has not been identified.
