      VILLAGE OF MIFFLIN, Wis. (AP) - An ice fisherman in southwestern Wisconsin who fell and hit his head on an icy street has died.

      Iowa County deputies say 52-year-old Doug Halverson was preparing to go ice fishing Saturday afternoon in the Village of Mifflin. He slipped and fell on a snow-covered road, striking his head.

      He lost consciousness and stopped breathing. A bystander began performing CPR until emergency responders took over.

      Halverson was taken to a hospital, where he died.
