CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (AP/WCCO) – Authorities in Chippewa Falls say heavy snow fell onto the roof of a shed where two young children were playing, crushing them both.

Ten-year-old Nelson Nolt and 7-year-old Norma Nolt were hospitalized Monday.

As of last check, they were both listed in critical condition.

The children were playing Saturday in the shed when a heavy layer of snow slid from an adjacent barn onto the shed roof, causing it to collapse.
