(CBS Connecticut) — A teenager fell through the ice and into a pond on Hicksville Road in Cromwell today.

Firefighter E-M-T Jeremy Hiriak says the teen was in a dangerous situation, in the water up to his shoulders and holding on to the ice.

“I put the cold water rescue suit on, and slid out to him, and I was able to help him get out of the water, onto the ice, and to shore,” Hiriak said.

The teenager was cold and scared when he was rescued.  He was taken to the hospital.
