A Michigan father and son died Monday morning after falling through thin ice.
Newsy's partners at WXYZ report David Michael Lyons and his 4-year-old son, Jackson, were fishing near a boat dock when they fell through the ice.
They were underwater for about 8 minutes before rescue divers could pull them to safety. Neither the father nor the son were wearing personal flotation devices, and both were wearing heavy snowmobiling clothes.

A fire chief told WXYZ he believes the heavier clothing made the effects of hypothermia work faster.
The two were rushed to a local hospital, but doctors were unable to revive them.
