A man died after falling into the water while ice fishing at Moraine State Park in Butler County.

Kenneth Andres, 73, of Butler was fishing alone on Saturday when he fell through the ice, said Dan Bickel, the park's manager.

Andres was fishing in a section of Lake Arthur near Prospect. He was spotted in the water at about 4 p.m. Park officials are uncertain how long he had been in the water by then.

Earlier Saturday, a number of people were ice fishing at the lake, Bickel said, but most left as the weather warmed.

Andres was wearing a life jacket. The Butler County Coroner's Office will rule on a cause of death.
