December 29, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A woman has died after an ATV she was riding in fell through the ice on Kabekona Lake in northern Minnesota.

Sixty year-old Rose Peterson, of Brooklyn Park, died Saturday night after she and two family members traveling in an ATV fell through thin ice on the lake, about 8 miles northwest of Walker.

Peterson’s son pulled all three out of the water after the ATV plunged into about 18 feet of water.

Peterson was unresponsive when her son performed CPR on the ice.

She was transported to a Bemidji hospital and later airlifted to Fargo where she was pronounced dead.
