Oklahoma man falls through ice, dies in SW Missouri

FORSYTH, Mo. – The Missouri State Highway Patrol says an Oklahoma man has died after he and another man fell through the ice on Swan Creek in southwestern Missouri.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that incident happened late Saturday night when 33-year-old Leo Satepauhoodle and 30-year-old Demarco McCoy, both of Tulsa, Oklahoma, walked out onto the ice on Swan Creek in Forsyth. Sgt. Mike McClure said something caught their attention, and they ventured far out onto the ice to try to get photos. When they reached thin ice far from the shoreline, both fell through.

The patrol says Satepauhoodle died early Sunday morning at a Branson hospital. McCoy was listed in serious condition at a Springfield hospital.
