POWELL, Ohio (WTVN) -- A Powell man has died after he was rescued from an icy pond Tuesday afternoon.
Siegbert A. Allespach, 74, was pronounced dead at Riverside Hospital around 5 p.m. Tuesday, less than two hours after Liberty Township firefighters rescued him and his dog from the Meadowview Park pond.
Investigators believe Allespach had been in the water for about 20 to 25 minutes before his rescue.
Allespach was apparently walking his dog in the area of South Wooten Court when the dog broke loose. He apparently chased the dog onto the pond, where both fell into the water.
The dog was rescued and is expected to survive.
