Ice Rescue

Incident Report #73 2000

We were requested to go to Walney Island, Barrow, with our specialist ice rescue equipment, when a young boy failed to return from walking his dog at a reservoir. The dog came back without him and all his parents could find was a hole in the ice. They feared the worse and called the Police. We were en route when he was located safe and well, so returned to Ambleside.
