ALTON, N.H. (AP) - Officials say the body of a 15-year-old New York boy has been pulled from an icy New Hampshire lake after he and his father fell through the ice while riding snowmobiles.

The two fell into Lake Winnipesaukee (wihn-ah-pah-SAH’-kee) in Alton on Saturday afternoon.

New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say the father reached an ice shelf and hung on until rescuers arrived in an air boat. He was hospitalized with hypothermia.

Lt. Brad Morse tells the Laconia Daily Sun responders recovered the teen’s body on Sunday morning. His name is being withheld until his family can be notified.

Officials say 62-year-old Mark O’Connell, of Moultonborough, and 68-year-old David Crosier, of Westborough, Massachusetts, also died on Saturday after snowmobiles they were riding fell into a different part of the lake.
