VILLAS, N.J. -

Emergency response officials are warning the community about the dangers of walking out on frozen ponds or lakes after crews sprang into action this weekend to rescue someone who fell through the ice.

On Saturday, February 4th, at around 5:30 p.m., the Villas Volunteer Fire Company was called to Ponder Lodge Lake for a water rescue after it was reported that someone fell through the ice and ended up on the island in the middle of the pond.

Two rescue swimmers proceeded out to the victim to safely bring back to shore.

Officials are reminding everyone in the community that ice is not always as thick as it seems and you should use caution to avoid becoming a victim.
