A ranger at Moraine State Park in Butler County pulled a man from the lake who had fallenthrough the ice, the park's assistant manager said on Saturday.
The man was unresponsive when he was pulled from the water, said assistant Manager Jake Weiland. Emergency responders started CPR.
The victim was ice fishing when he fell through the ice, Weiland said.
Ranger Rick Carson used an ice rescue unit to reach him, and the man was taken to Butler Memorial Hospital. Weiland did not know his condition.
The man was ice fishing by himself. Someone in a car on state Route 422 spotted him in the water and called 911, Weiland said.
Butler County emergency dispatchers said a call came in shortly before 5 p.m.
