Child falls through ice in Monroe County

A child was rescued in Monroe County after falling through the ice at a pond in Stroudsburg.

STROUDSBURG, Pa. — Emergency crews say a group of kids were playing on the ice behind the Stroud Township Municipal Building Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 when one fell through.

Fire crews used a ladder from the truck and a rope to pull the child to safety.

The child was taken to the hospital but is expected to be okay.

The fire chief says the ice is not thick enough to walk in Monroe County.
