A man and an elderly woman are dead after their car sunk into an icy channel of Lake Minnetonka on Saturday, said the Hennepin County Sherriff's office.
The two were unconscious when first responders arrived about five minutes after receiving a 911 call at 2:25 p.m. from the male driver's cell phone, said the Star Tribune. Hennepin County Sherriff's office dive teams were able to get the two out of the waters of Gray's Bay Channel in less than an hour, according to Pioneer Press.
Following their rescue, the two were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where they both died, said the Star Tribune.
The identities of the deceased have not yet been released.
