MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A Maryland 10-year-old boy has died after he and two friends were rescued from an icy pond.

The Montgomery County fire department says the three boys–all between the ages of 9 and 12–fell through a thin layer of ice on a retaining pond in Gaithersburg.

Firefighters quickly pulled the two boys from the water but it took a half hour to find the third on the bottom of the pond.

He died at the hospital.
