12-9-05 - An elderly Choctaw county man died on Thursday after getting trapped in mud around a farm pond. An OHP trooper says it appears 85-year-old Carl Faulks was trying to punch a hole in the ice for his cattle to drink when he got stuck in thick mud.
It likely happened sometime after 9:30am. A family member discovered his body after 5pm. The incident happened on Faulks property north of Boswell. Troopers believe he died due to exposure in sub-freezing temperatures.
