Woman Rescued After Breaking Through Pond Ice in North Iowa
CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say police officers rescued a woman who’d fallen through ice on a pond while trying to retrieve her dog.
The Clear Lake Fire Department says in a news release that 28-year-old Kelsey Boehnke went onto Fieldstone Pond to get her dog a little after 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Boehnke then broke through the thin ice into the chilling water. Police officers who were first on the scene pulled her out.
She was taken to Mercy Medical Center – North Iowa in Mason City for treatment. It’s unclear whether her dog also fell in.
