Four teenagers escaped serious injuries after they fell through the ice at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex in LaSalle Sunday.

Police say that just before 2 pm, the teens went to the pond to get a little exercise and play some hockey.

Shortly after getting out onto the ice, the ice broke, and all four teens fell into the water. They were all able to quickly escape the frigid water; however, one had submerged under the water for a moment.

A parent of one of the teens was on the scene at the pond to supervise and called 911. The teens all made it to safety, and Paramedics assessed the teens for any injuries and hypothermia.

One teen who had been submerged was transported to the hospital for further assessment. Parents were contacted to attend the pond to pick up the other three teens.

The pond at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex is now closed for all activities at this time. While it has been cold recently, officials say it has not been cold enough or for long enough to trust that any ice is safe over any body of water for any activity.
