A Middleboro man rescued a teenage boy after he fell through the ice on a nearby pond.

The man, who lives next door to Woods Pond, said he heard someone at the pond yelling for help. He found an aluminum boat on shore and slid it into the water before jumping in. The man, with the help of an off-duty firefighter, then pulled the 16-year-old boy to safety.

The boy was not injured but firefighters are warning people to stay away from thin ice.
