Unsafe conditions lead to thin ice warning

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire officials are issuing a thin ice warning for area ponds after a Concord city worker rescued a man from a pond in a city park.

On Christmas Eve, Concord Parks and Recreation employee Tom Wright noticed a young man struggling in vain to get out of the icy waters of a pond in White Park.

Officials say the man went out on the ice to rescue his dog, which had fallen through about 30 feet from shore. He managed to get his dog back onto the ice but couldn't pull himself up or break a path through the ice.

Wright ran into the pond and pulled the man to safety.

The ice skating ponds at White Park and Beaver Meadow Golf Course remain closed due to unsafe conditions.
