Tenn. officers rescue boy from icy pond

By Clay Bailey

Bartlett firefighters and police officers scrambled through the frosty backyards along Wolf Shadow and Wolf Pine on Thursday, trying to find the best way to rescue a 10-year-old from beneath the icy pond waters.

Time was of the essence. Depending on reports, the boy had gone through the ice as much as 10 minutes before the distress call went out at 1:03 p.m. The boy was underwater, temperatures were in the mid-20s and rescuers couldn't see him from the bank or a boat they found in an adjacent backyard.
