The ice on the pond was dangerously thin when the 11-year-old boy fell through it on Saturday.

“He was rescued and he’s doing fine, but we wanted to take this opportunity to remind everybody – the ice is too thin to be walking on right now,” said Crown Point Assistant Fire Chief Mark Baumgardner.

Firefighters said the ice was just two inches thick – way too think to walk on.

Thankfully, some of the boy’s friends were able to grab a broom and pull him out of the frigid water.
