Colorado Fire Dept. rescues kids from icy lake

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (NBC) - Four children fell through an icy lake Tuesday in Colorado.

Neighbors were able to help three of them to safety using hoses, extension cords and ropes.

However, the West Metro Fire Dive Team had to pull out a fourth child.

From there, the ambulance took the young teen to a local hospital.

His condition is unknown at this time.

Fire agencies are urging people to teach their children to stay away from ponds and lakes in the area and to keep their pets on a leash around icy bodies of water.

They say if someone falls into the water, don't go after them, instead call 911.
