— Two Beloit residents were taken to St. Mary's Hospital with exposure symptoms after falling through the ice while ice fishing Wednesday on Lake Monona, according to a Dane County Sheriff's Office press release.

Darlene Brewer, 66, and Ronald Antonelli, 65, fell through the ice about 300 yards from the landing in Squaw Bay. Police and rescue officials responded at 5:07 p.m. Wednesday to the Winnequah Boat Landing, according to the release.


Two Dane County Sheriff's Office Marine and Trail Enforcement Bureau deputies used an airboat to reach the pair and pull them from the water, the release said.


Brewer remained hospitalized Thursday, according to a St. Mary's spokeswoman. However, no one named Antonelli was listed as a patient at the hospital, another spokeswoman said.
