Sussex man and his son die after vehicle falls through ice

 A Sussex man and his son died in Lake Winnebago when their car fell through the lake's ice around 7 a.m. on January 25. The Winnebago County Sheriff's Office says live saving efforts performed by first responders failed, and both victims were pronounced dead.

The sheriff's office identified the victims as Andrew Doro, 40, and his son Derek Doro, 8. WLUK reports emergency responders were called nearly three miles from the coast of Lake Winnebago. The Oshkosh Fire Department located where the vehicle went through the ice, and divers were able to retrieve both drowning victims.

Local fishermen told WLUK warm weather and high winds are to blame for a more unstable lake this year. 

Derek Doro was a 2nd grade student at Maple Avenue Elementary School. School staff and parents were notified of the incident the morning of January 26. Parents were given the option of breaking the news to their children first.

Wisconsin's DNR offers some helpful advice if you're ice fishing on a lake.  Always know the ice depth.  Four inches can hold you while 14 inches can support a medium truck.  While inside a vehicle, make sure your windows are cracked and doors unlocked in case you need to make a quick escape.
