INDIANAPOLIS, In. (November 22, 2014) — An 11-year-old boy fell through an ice-covered pond in the 7000 block of Redtail Drive on the city’s West side.

The 11-year-old had gone onto the pond to retrieve a toy when he fell through and was in the water for about 8 minutes.

He was able to pull himself up onto the ice and out of the water.

His mother was able to help get him to shore safely.

The boy was not hurt but the Department of Natural Resources would like to remind everyone that no ice is considered safe.
