Boy found safe after getting stuck in Kandiyohi County pond

NEW LONDON -- It was a happy ending late this afternoon when a 4-year-old boy was found safe after getting stuck in a pond in a wooded area of northeast Kandiyohi County.

There were at least 50 volunteers -- in addition to rescue and law enforcement personnel -- arriving in Irving Township to search this afternoon. A State Patrol helicopter had arrived, but the boy was found shortly afterward -- cold but unharmed.

The boy had been outside playing with his black Labrador puppy for only a few minutes when his mother couldn't find him.
