Two people are dead after their car went through the ice on Lake Minnetonka Saturday.

Harland Dietrich, 31, and his grandma, Mary Ann Haram, 87, were unconscious when dive teams pulled them from the water. They were pronounced dead at Hennepin County Medical Center, reported the Pioneer Press.

Police and first responders arrived within 5 or 6 minutes of receiving a phone call from Dietrich at 2:24 p.m. The car, a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix, was submerged in a 10-foot-deep channel on the east side of Lake Minnetonka. Dietrich and Haram were rescued by divers after being underwater for roughly an hour, according to the Star Tribune.
