Boy unhurt after falling through northwest Wichita pond ice

A 9-year-old boy was not injured when he fell through ice on a frozen pond near 119th Street West and Central on Saturday morning.

The boy was able to pull himself to safety, and although his worst symptoms were being cold and wet, the incident serves as a reminder to stay off of frozen water, said Wichita Police Sgt. Jerry Quick.

"A lot of ponds still are going to be covered with ice," he said. "But people need to not venture out onto the ice. It might look thicker than it is."
