A Cedar Falls man is dead after falling through the ice while ice fishing Wednesday night. Waterloo Fire rescue crews said the thin ice on George Wyth Lake gave way causing 51-year old Wade Clark to fall in Wednesday night.
Clark was taken to a Waterloo hospital where he later died. Clark was unresponsive when rescue crews pulled him from the ice waters. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources had been issuing warnings about the weakening ice due to the unseasonably warm weather.
Clarks death is the third to occur this week. A couple died in a rural Madison County pond on Monday in a similar accident.
