November 25, 2019

A man has died after two males fell through the ice while ice fishing Sunday at Little Bow Provincial Park.

Police received the call around 1pm. EMS and Lomond and Champion Fire Departments were also on the scene. Officials say one male fell through the ice and his fishing partner tried to rescue him but while doing so also fell through the ice. A third male threw the two men a rope and managed to rescue the one male. They were unable to access the second male who fell in. The 59-year Calgary man was retrieved and brought to shore. Attempts to revive the man by EMS were unsuccessful.
