A 30-year-old father and his 4-year-old son died on Monday after they fell through ice while fishing on a small lake northwest of Detroit.

The Oakland County sheriff's office identified the victims as David Lyons of Highland Township and his son Jackson Lyons, reported The Associated Press.

They fell into Alderman Lake about 10:37 a.m. They were rushed to a hospital after sheriff's divers pulled them from the water, but resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful.

Highland Township Assistant Fire Chief Richard Cole said neither had on a life vest.

Cole called the deaths "a tragic accident" and said "with these fluctuating temperatures, no one should be on the ice unless they have a live vest or a life preserver."

Local temperatures Monday were in the mid-30s to low 40s.
