Utah boy survived falling through frozen pond
A young Utah boy is lucky to be alive this morning, after falling through a frozen pond and spending several minutes in the icy water.
An 11 year old was playing on the frozen pond at a park with a friend when the ice gave way.
Luckily, a fisherman saw Jo, go into the water, and called 911 right away.
Police responded, but when an officer went out on the ice with a rope, he made it only a few feet before the ice began breaking up beneath his feet.
The fisherman and an off-duty officer who was jogging at the park stepped in to help.
Eventually, they were able to get a rope to Noah, and pull him to safety.
Noah was taken to the hospital but suffered only a few scratches and was released a short time later.
Police estimate he was in the icy water for at least five minutes.
