2 children rescued after falling through ice at Mukwonago retention pond

MUKWONAGO -- Mukwonago emergency crews rescued two children who had fallen through the ice at a retention pond on Thursday, Dec. 26.

Officials say this incident happened in the area of Stoecker Farm Avenue and Fairwinds Boulevard around 3:45 p.m. on that Thursday.

After the children fell through the ice, officials say bystanders tried to throw ropes and electrical cords to the children -- without success. One of the kids could not tread water -- and went underwater. At that time, a Mukwonago officer entered the water and made his way to the children.

Mukwonago Water Rescue personnel entered the water -- and retrieved the kids and officer from the water.

The children and the officer were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
