Two Aurora police officers suffered minor injuries after helping to rescue a child who fell through the ice on Wednesday afternoon.
According to authorities, dispatchers received a call from a 9-year-old child falling through the ice into a retention basin. Officials say the child was trying to retrieve a soccer ball from a frozen part of the pond when the ice gave way, plunging them into the water.
Officers who arrived at the scene deployed rescue kits and two additional officers jumped into the water to rescue the child and a woman who had attempted a rescue.
Officers were able to bring the child and woman ashore, authorities said.
The 9-year-old boy was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The woman was treated at the scene, police said.
The two officers who jumped into the water were also taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, authorities said.
