A 22-year-old snowmobiler died after going through the ice on the St. Croix River in eastern Minnesota, reported the Star Tribune.

He was pulled from the water within 20 minutes after the Washington County Sheriff's Office received a call of a man on a snowmobile going into the river, reported the Star Tribune.

Chief Deputy Dan Starry told the Pioneer Press, the man broke through the ice near the Xcel Energy Allen S. King power plant, which has a warm-water feed running into the river.

At least three Twin Cities area residents have died this winter when their vehicles broke through the ice, reported the Pioneer Press.

The man's identity is likely to be released on Sunday after his family is notified, Starry told the Star Tribune.
