A man is dead after his car broke through the ice at Balsam Lake in Polk County. Sheriff’s deputies say they were called to the narrows between Balsam Lake and East Balsam just before five o’clock yesterday afternoon.
They found an SUV nearly fully submerged with a man inside about two hours later. He was given CPR and taken to a nearby hospital but was unable to be revived. His name is not yet being released.
