ABOVE VIDEO: A police officer punched his way through the ice on a frozen pond to pull an 8-year-old boy from under the water Monday, according to KSTU.
Lt. David Crouse, of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, said emergency crews responded to a report of a child who had fallen through the ice into a pond just after 5 p.m. in New Harmony, which is in southern Utah.
Crouse said an 8-year-old boy was chasing a dog and fell through the ice. Another boy who was watching this happen went and tried to help the child, but was unable to get him out of the water.
At that point, the other child went for help. Sgt. Thompson, with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, was the first on scene, and LifeFlight along with EMS and a search and rescue dive team were on the way.
