WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Officials say firefighters had to rescue three teen boys from an island after they fell through the ice on a frozen pond in Worcester (WUS’-tur).

Deputy Chief John Sullivan tells the Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/2jS8drT ) emergency responders were called to Cook’s Pond on Sunday afternoon.

Sullivan says three boys, ages 13 and 14, fell through the ice while trying to walk across the pond to a social club on an island. The boys reached the island, but were unable to return.

Firefighters used a pontoon sled that slides on the ice to transport the teens to shore.

Officials say the boys were taken to a hospital to be evaluated. They weren’t seriously hurt.
