FONDA, Iowa (AP) - A northern Iowa teenager died while snowmobiling on a creek in Pocahontas County.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says 13-year-old Raymond Gatzemeyer, of Fonda, died Wednesday from injuries he suffered while operating a snowmobile southwest of Fonda.

Gatzemeyer struck a rope that was suspended between two pillars of a bridge. He was taken to a hospital in Sac City, where he was pronounced dead.

Gatzemeyer, who was wearing a helmet, was out with a group that included two other snowmobiles and an all-terrain vehicle.

Fonda is about 30 miles west of Fort Dodge.
