One person is dead, after falling through the ice on Madison’s Lake Monona.
It happened near a boat launch on the lake just before four on Tuesday afternoon. Authorities say the man was ice sailing and fell through the thin ice, into open water.
Cold water rescue teams were called in, but the victim was in the water for well over a half hour before being pulled out. He was pronounced dead about two hours later at UW Hospital after resuscitation efforts failed.
The name of the victim has not yet been released.
