Stonington — Two young teenagers were rescued in Old Mystic after they fell into a pond Tuesday evening, town police said.

Stonington police Sgt. Timothy Marley said the two youths fell through the ice into the water of a pond off Lantern Hill Road about 5 p.m. Tuesday. The water was anywhere from 8 to 10 feet deep.

Marley said several youths were playing in the area, and one ran home to get a parent to help. The parent then came with a hockey stick and was able to rescue the youths from the water. The juveniles are safe and with their family, Marley said.

He said Old Mystic Fire Department and Mystic River Ambulance, with mutual aid from North Stonington Ambulance, responded along with Stonington police Officer Sarah Napolitano.
