After a father died on Friday while rescuing his son from a frozen pond, officials in Maine are issuing ice safety warnings to the public.

What Happened?

According to a news release from the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, on the morning of January 26, Kevin Howell, 51, and his 4-year-old son fell through the ice while crossing Etna Pond near Carmel, Maine. According to the sheriff’s office, Howell was able to pull his son out of the frozen pond and instructed him to go retrieve his mother.

According to the sheriff’s office, his kid was able to go to their house, which is located about 1/3 of a mile from the pond, and tell his mother. “Mom instructed the small lad to remain at home.

According to the sheriff’s office, the mother tried to rescue her husband by reaching the lake with a rope and anchor and securing it to the beach, but she fell into the icy water.

After hearing the 911 call, Penobscot Sheriff Detective Jordan Norton, who was nearby, saw Howell’s wife in the water. He went onto the ice and used the rope to help the mother get out of the icy water, according to the sheriff’s office. However, the sheriff’s office reported that Howell was missing.

Six Maine Warden Service divers and one State Police diver showed up to help after Norton was able to rejoin Howell’s wife and son, according to the sheriff’s office. Divers found Howell’s body after 20 minutes of searching, according to police.

In a different incident, WGME 13, a CBS News affiliate, reported that five people, including three children, were rescued on Saturday after their utility vehicle broke through the ice on Denmark, Maine’s Moose Pond.

Authorities in Maine are now cautioning citizens to always be equipped with the right tools—such as ice chisels and picks of life—before venturing onto the ice.
