BEND, OR -- A five-year old was rescued from a Bend pond, Sunday afternoon. The girl had reportedly been sledding on a snow-covered hill at Discovery Park.
She wasn’t able to slow down and slid across the icy pond and into the middle where the ice had melted. She became fully submerged and her 18-year-old caretaker went in after her.
The girls struggled and yelled for help. Two others jumped in to help and were able to pull the pair out before emergency crews arrived.
Both were very cold; but Bend Police say the efforts of Eric Klump and Diane Allen likely prevented serious injuries.
