Icy pond tragedy in Ohio

Posted: Updated:

CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio - A boy is dead and two girls were rescued after they all fell into an icy pond in rural Clermont County, Ohio Sunday.

According to the initial investigation, rescuers said a twin brother and sister and another girl were on the ice when they fell through.

The girls were able to get out of the pond on their own. After being submerged for almost an hour in the pond, the boy was rescued and flown to Southwest Medical Center, in Georgetown, by a medical helicopter.

The Clermont County sheriff said the boy, 9, died at 5:30 p.m.

Neighbor Landon Williams was the first person to come to the children's rescue.

"I told them, I said, 'Get off the ice and go back that way," Williams said. "It was happening so fast and two of them were down and I wanted to do everything I could do to try and get them out."
