Two Die After Falling Through Ice On Pond In Sheboygan County

Rescuers pulled two bodies -- a father and daughter -- from an icy pond in Sheboygan County Friday.

The sheriff's department says the father was skating with two daughters at the pond in Cedar Grove when his nine-year-old girl fell through the ice into the water.

The man then apparently fell in while trying to rescue her. Authorities say his six-year-old daughter ran to get help.

The sheriff's department says the pond's ice is about three inches thick. The temperature there Friday was 22 degrees
