Boy drowns after falling through ice in Minot

MINOT, N.D. – Minot police say a boy drowned in the Mouse River after he fell through the ice.

Minot television station KXMC reports that police and firefighters were called to the riverbank behind a mobile-home park on the southeast side of Minot about 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

A boy clinging to a piece of ice in the middle of the river was rescued, but a fire department dive team found another boy unconscious underwater a short time later.

Both boys were taken to a hospital. The boy who died has not been identified.

Authorities warn the public to stay off the river because the ice is thin.
