Boy, 11, Drowns After Saving Friend From Frozen Pond

An 11-year-old boy drowned Tuesday after jumping into a Queens, New York, pond to save the life of his friend who had fallen through the ice.

Anthony Perez, 11, and his 12-year-old friend Juan Umpierrez were playing near a pond in Forrest Park around 4 p.m. when Umpierrez went onto thin ice and fell through, according to a New York City Fire Department Facebook post.

Perez, who was on land at the time, followed his friend onto the ice to try to help him. Perez was able to push Umpierrez to safety, but he became trapped beneath the ice, unable to get out. Umpierrez, meanwhile, ran home to get help.

"Members (of the FDNY) had to physically, with their hands, break through the ice and chop the ice so they could get to the area that they knew the child would most likely be in. They had to go underneath to get the child," FDNY Deputy Chief George Healy said at the scene.

It's inspiring,unfortunately in a tragic way,to know there are still members of our society who still have a concern for others..instead of this steady  diet  of those who put their own interests and safety above the concerns of their fellow man..also with tragic outcomes,at times...

This is so sad,  a life taken before it had a real start.  He had great potential to be a great person.

everyday it seems like something else...with his inner circle involved....they were going on about Porter today ,who had to quit,because of his behavior toward his wives ....i dont know that much about this guy  or his importance in our government...but there are others  in other countries who must be a little confused about "what's going on???" over here...

And he's defending him... 

I think a lot of us feel the same way, confused and wondering what's next?

I don't he will,  he is too hooked on the "prestige" of being VP

Good Point!!!

probably the Trumpster feels that the more he exposes Pence to the Globe ...the more time he'll have at the golf course!!!
