St. Louis County Man Dies After Falling Into Icy Water

CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) –  An 81-year-old St. Louis County man has died after falling into an icy ravine.

The victim’s name has not been released.

KSDK-TV reports that the man was walking his dog Wednesday night in Creve Coeur.

The dog returned home a short time later without its owner, and the man’s family contacted police.

Within an hour, emergency workers found foot tracks leading them to a deep embankment near a lake, about 100 yards from the man’s home. He was in a foot of icy water.

A spokeswoman at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center confirmed early Thursday that the man died.
