Friday, January 3rd, 2014 at 7:53 am

A tragic update on a story we brought you earlier in the week. Two Children were injured when snow fell off of a roof in Chippewa county last Saturday. The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department is now reporting that one of those children has passed away due to the injuries he suffered.

In a report by the Associated Press we learned that 10-year old Nelson Nolt was taken off life support equipment and passed away from injuries suffered in the accident. His funeral services will be held today. Nelson’s seven-year old sister Norma Nolt remained in critical condition.

Investigators explain that the two children were inside a silo room when snow fell from the barn onto the silo room roof, which then collapsed on top of them.
