Ice Rescue in Foxborough, Mass

grab11

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. —Firefighters in Foxborough rescued two men who fell into a reservoir while ice fishing on Sunday, officials say.

The men were ice fishing at Neponset Reservoir when they fell through the ice, firefighters said. A woman tried to rescue them, but then called 911 after she fell through the ice trying to get to the men.

Both men were in the water for about 10 to 15 minutes before being rescued, officials said. A 41-year-old man whose body temperature dropped was taken to a Boston hospital by a medical helicopter that landed at a Gillette Stadium practice field, according to firefighters. A man in his 60s was transported to Norwood Hospital.

Neither man’s injuries are considered life-threatening.

“I don’t know what they’re doing out there on the ice,” Foxborough Fire Capt. Thomas Buckley said. “If you walk out there you’ll see that half the ice is gone.”
