Heroic 11-year-old boy

Heroic boy’s death sparks thin-ice warning

Toronto police are warning people to stay off ice after a young boy died trying to rescue his friend from a frozen pond.

“Parents should be telling their children to stay away from ice,” said Const. Gary Gibson is with the Toronto police marine unit. “The only safe ice is ice in a rink.”

The 11-year-old boy died in hospital Sunday night after he tried to pull his 15-year-old friend from a pond in north Scarborough. His friend was in critical condition Monday. Family members requested the boys’ names not be released.
