Lake Accident Kills 3




Three Russian fishermen driving in a car on frozen Lake Ladoga northeast of St. Petersburg were killed when the vehicle fell through the ice, a news agency said Monday.


The accident occurred Sunday when the men decided to change their fishing spot. A companion who warned them of possible risk and refused to join them witnessed the vehicle plunging into the lake moments later, Itar-Tass said.


On Monday, divers and other emergency workers with a crane went to the site to recover the bodies.
