Man dies after falling into icy pond in Eau Claire County


AUGUSTA, WI (WTAQ) - Just because there’s snow on the ground does not mean it’s cold enough to go on the ice.

That’s what officials in Eau Claire County said, after a man fell into an icy pond and died.

Sheriff’s officials were called to a farm near Augusta around 7 p.m. Tuesday. Relatives said the man was missing – and he may have fallen on thin ice on a pond behind the farm.

Rescuers found the man in the pond about an hour later – and he died a short time after that.

Sheriff’s officials said the victim was from a large Amish family, and was apparently in his 50’s. His name was not immediately released.
