From the Beloit FD:
Christmas Eve approx. 5:30pm the City of Beloit Fire Department, City of Beloit Fire Department’s Water Rescue Team, Turtle Fire Department, and the City of South Beloit’s Water Rescue Team was called for a car that was sinking in a retention pond.
When City of Beloit units arrived on scene we found a car that was starting to fall through the broken ice.
Dispatch informed us that everybody was out of the vehicle seconds before we arrived on scene. We returned most of the units responding and a couple of Beloit fire units assisted with recovering the vehicle from the pond.
All units were back in service by 7pm.
