Update: Names Released of Husband, Wife Involved in Fall into Quarry in Winnebago County

The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office has released the
names of the husband and wife involved in a fall into a quarry in Winnebago
County Monday afternoon. Authorities say 31-year-old Alissa Bartels and 31-year-old
Lucas Bartels – both from Oshkosh – fell 40-to-50 feet into the quarry on
County Road D in the Town of Poygan, near Winneconne, just after 3 pm Monday. The
couple had been visiting a nearby business, when they left on foot and ended up
on the top ridge of the quarry. A friend found them at the bottom of the
quarry. Alissa Bartels died at the scene, while Lucas was airlifted to a
hospital with serious injuries. The Sheriff’s Office believes the two were not familiar
with the terrain of the area. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
