Ohio deputy makes arrest after fall into icy pond

After being pulled out from the icy, shallow pond, the deputies continued their search for burglary suspects

The Associated Press

GREEN, Ohio — An Ohio deputy chasing two burglary suspects fell through ice into a pond but still helped make the arrest.

Summit County deputies were summoned early Tuesday on a report that two people had broken into a couple's home in Green and made off with a laptop computer and cell phone.

Neighbors told Cleveland's WJW-TV they observed officers following footprints in the snow to track the suspects.

During the chase that followed, Deputy Dan Cuckler stumbled through ice on a pond, finding himself up to his neck in frigid water.

Sheriff's Inspector Bill Holland says another deputy helped pull Cuckler out and they persistently continued their search.

A man and a woman were arrested about an hour later. They've been charged with burglary.
