TOWN OF NEWBOLD, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in northern Wisconsin say a 58-year-old Rhinelander man is dead after his snowmobile went through the ice.

The Oneida County Dispatch got a 911 call late Friday morning that a snowmobile had gone through the ice in shallow water on the shore of Lake Mildred in the township of Newbold.

The operator was found near the snowmobile. He was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The victim is identified as Russell A. Johnson.

The Oneida County medical examiner’s office and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources are investigating.
