A 44-year-old US man and his 9-year-old daughter died after falling through the ice of a small pond while skating in Wisconsin
, the county sheriff's department said.
The man and his 9- and 6-year-old daughters were skating on the football-field size pond Friday morning when the 9-year-old fell through, Sheboygan County sheriff's Sgt. Doug Tuttle said in a news release.
The father fell in while apparently trying to rescue her, Tuttle said. The 6-year-old then ran to a nearby residence, Tuttle said.
