FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) — One man is dead after two all-terrain vehicles broke through the ice on Lake Winnebago in Fond du Lac County.

Authorities say a 55-year-old man was traveling in a group of ATV riders near the Fond du Lac River Monday about 9:30 p.m. when his vehicle broke through the ice. Another ATV carrying a 23-year-old Fond du Lac man and a 22-year-old woman was unable to stop and plunged into the water.

A third vehicle was able to stop and the operator helped the woman from the water. The 23-year-old man tried to rescue the 55-year-old.

First responders pulled both men from the water. The older man was pronounced dead at a hospital. The younger man and the woman were taken to the hospital, treated and released.
