Green Bay man dies after truck falls into lake

MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a 79-year-old Green Bay man is dead after the truck he was driving fell through the ice on Lake Noquebay.

The Marinette County Sheriff’s Office said its dive team found the man inside the truck Saturday morning at the bottom of the lake. The man was identified as Herbert C. Lax Jr., WBAY-TV reported.

Authorities said they began searching for Lax on Friday night after a fisherman called to report a patch of open water on the lake and a floating cooler.
