Man Saves Girls Who Fell Through The Ice

KSCB News - December 27, 2011 8:08 am

A Hutchinson man is being credited with

saving two young girls who fell through thin ice on a pond.

Reno County sheriff’s officers say Bud Brown saved the girls,

ages 6 and 7 on Sunday. The girls were visiting their relatives,

who live near Brown east of Hutchinson.

The girls, 6-year-old Jenna McKay of Bernice, Okla., and 7-year-old

Janessa Stringer of Belle Plaine, were treated at a hospital but

were not seriously injured.

Brown said he saw the girls fall through the ice on the pond

behind his house. He called 911 then waded into the chest-deep

water, breaking the ice with his fists. He eventually reached the

girls and was able to pull them from the water.
