Firefighters borrowed a boat from Dick’s Sporting Goods at the Rivertown Crossings Mall to rescue a teen who fell through the thin ice of a pond and was trying to keep his head above water for 25 minutes, reports mlive.com.

Mall security staff rushed to Dick’s Sporting Goods after they learned of trouble on the small pond at the northwest corner of the mall property.

Georgetown Township firefighters, dressed in ice rescue suits, managed to use the boat to reach the teen and pull him into the vessel.
He was reportedly talking to rescuers before being transported to the hospital for hypothermia.
