INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities say a central Indiana man rescued two juveniles who fell through the ice on a retention pond, while a third pulled himself to safety.

Indiana Conservation Officers say 33-year-old Jeremy Parks of Indianapolis ran to the scene after three youths fell through while walking on half-inch thick ice about 12:40 p.m. Saturday. By the time Parks arrived, one youth had pulled himself out.

Parks fell in while helping the other two. He got one victim back on the ice and then began to struggle after reaching the second victim. Both were able to get out after neighbors pulled them out with a hose.

One youth was taken to Riley Hospital for observation, but appeared to be in good condition. The others were checked at the scene and released.
