An 11-year-old Illinois boy is in stable condition and recovering after he fell through the ice at a retention pond on Sunday.

The boy was playing on the frozen pond in Naperville just before 5:00 pm Sunday, when he crashed through the ice.

When the fire brigade arrived at the hold of the pond, the boy said that he couldn’t move because his feet stuck in the muddy soil, the ministry said in a statement.

“Stay there, stay there,” one of the firefighters heard screaming in a 90-second video released of the dramatic rescue.

The video shows the boy in the middle of the frozen pond with a thick coat and a hat.

Fire and police tied a neon orange rescue disk to a long rope and threw it to the boy.
