Teen Recovering After Falling Through Ice In O’Fallon Park

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – A 16-year-old St. Louis boy is recovering after falling through ice in O’Fallon Park Tuesday morning.

The teen managed to pull himself out of the lake and get help from neighbors.

He is being treated at a local hospital. His name and condition were not released.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports St. Louis Fire Capt. Garon Mosby says the boy was cutting through the park and thought he could walk on the ice.

The air temperature was about 13 degrees, but the high on Monday was 50 degrees and the ice wasn’t solid.
