A woman who jumped into a frigid Hamilton pond to save two dogs that fell through thin ice was rescued yesterday by police, who found her exhausted and in mortal peril.

Susan Gribbell, 46, of Wenham was saved by a patrolman in a cold-water rescue suit and taken to Beverly Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Hamilton police Officer Brian L. Shaw said that he was heading north from the town center on Route 1A shortly after 9 a.m. when he noticed several dogs acting strangely at the edge of the pond in Patton Park.
