FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio
Authorities say a 9-year-old boy drowned when he fell through the ice on a pond in southwestern Ohio.
A dive team recovered the boy's body. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The property's owner, Landon Wiliams, says he told three children to get off the ice, and the brother and sister broke through as they were leaving.
Williams says he used an electrical extension cord to help pull the girl to safety. But the girl's brother went underwater as rescue crews arrived.
Their names haven't been released.
