A 10-year-old boy who spent two hours beneath the icy waters of a lake died despite a day of feverish efforts by doctors who said they had not given up hope despite the long odds for his survival. Jeffrey Goodale died about 36 hours after he had fallen through lake ice, said Martin Bander, a spokesman for Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Jeffrey slipped through the ice about 11 a.m. Saturday when he ran after his dog onto the partially frozen lake on Martha's Vineyard.
