He only went onto the ice to grab his soccer ball when the ice cracked and he fell in…

The Herald News gave big thumbs up to State Trooper Kyle Duarte along with the teenagers on the scene who helped rescue this unidentified 15-year old boy.

The kids were playing soccer near the Quequechan River at Britland Park when the boy went after a soccer ball that had landed on the ice. The kids called for help and acted quickly forming a rescue chain with each other holding onto the boy until the police arrived.

The boy was treated and released from Saint Anne’s Hospital.
