(CULVER) - A Culver man died over the weekend after falling through an icy lake.

72-year-old Ronald King died Saturday night after being pulled from Lake Maxinkuckee.

Police say King was sailing an ice boat when the boat fell through the ice and got stuck.

An ice boat is a sailboat with blades on the bottom.
