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.
