LAKE DELTON, Wis. (AP) - Tests have determined an ice resurfacing machine was the source of carbon monoxide that sickened dozens of people at a Wisconsin rink over the weekend.

Delton Fire Chief Darren Jorgenson says the machine has been tagged out of service, and the Poppy Waterman Ice Rink in Lake Delton will have to get a new one.

The leak was discovered after players and others began feeling ill during a game Saturday between the Dells Ducks and Ice Hawks from Rochester, Minnesota.

Ducks head coach Bill Zaniboni said Monday the player treated in a hyperbaric chamber at a Milwaukee hospital has returned home. Players reported headaches, dizziness and nausea and one player passed out.

The fire chief says the arena has since installed eight carbon monoxide detectors.
