A 74-year-old central Ohio man who fell through the ice on a frozen pond has died.
Rescuers were alerted to Allespach in the water by his frantically barking dog. No one saw him go in, but he might have been in the icy water for up to 25 minutes before he was rescued.
Authorities don't know why he was on the pond, but police said he might have been chasing his dog. The animal was not injured.
