IFD rescues mother, children from pond after icy slide-off

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Five people were rescued on the north side after black ice caused two vehicles to end up in a retention pond.

Just after 6:30 p.m., crews were dispatched to the area of 86th St. and Township Line Rd. on the report of a water rescue.

Two cars, a Dodge Nitro and a Toyota 4 Runner, reportedly hit black ice and ended up in the freezing pond. Five people were rescued, including a mother and her two daughters and 4-year-old son, in about 20 minutes.

IFD says right after the accident, an unidentified bystander swam toward the family to bring the 4-year-old to shore safely.

No injuries were reported.
