BEND, OR -- Bend Firefighters rescued a person who fell through the ice on the Deschutes River near the Old Mill District, Saturday afternoon. Fire officials say the victim was one of three people who ventured out onto the ice at about 3 p.m. 
 
The person got out of the water on their own and was sitting on an unstable ice shelf when rescuers arrived. A firefighter in a dry suit crawled out onto the ice to secure the victim and get them back to shore.  
 

Bend Fire reminds everyone of the dangers of iced over bodies of water... rivers are particularly dangerous, as currents can pull victims underneath the ice and make recovery difficult.
