Cinque matricole delle scuole superiori vengono chiamate eroi per aver salvato due bambini da uno stagno ghiacciato

Cinque adolescenti del New Jersey vengono acclamati come eroi dopo aver salvato due bambini dalla caduta in uno stagno ghiacciato mentre erano in slitta.

Sono un gruppo di matricole delle superiori, Tyler Armagan, Ryan Day, Joseph Dietrich, Kieran Foley and Drew Scalice, were getting ready to head home Thursday from sledding at the Beacon Hill Country Club in Middletown, New Jersey. Then they heard a commotion and realized the two small children were headed straight into a pond at the bottom of a hill.
Kieran, 14, detto CNN’s New Day that the two siblings, 8-year-old Olivia Heid and her little brother, 4-year-old R.J., were sledding down the hill and their dad was yelling at them to jump off the sled.
They just went so fast right down the hill,” Kieran said, adding because the two were facing backwards, “they really didn’t see it coming.
    The boys, all members of the same Boy Scout troop, quickly went into action to get the two children out. Kieran was into the water first and the boys formed a human chain to get them out quickly.
    I knew it wasn’t that deep, the water, so I just picked them up and brought them to the side of the pond to get them as warm as possible,” Kieran said.
    The boys split up to get them out of the water and then consoled them as they waited.
    All I can remember is seeing the kids come down,” Drew said. “When we went to the car they started to crybut Ryan was trying to calm the kids down, asking them what they wanted for Christmas, all that type of stuff.
      The parents of the rescued children, Richard Heid and Stephanie Irlbeck, sent CNN a video thanking the young men fortheir courage and braveryand the kids gave them a hearty “grazie.”
      I’m grateful that it’s a good, positive impact on everyone’s life and the kids were safe and no one got hurt,” Kieran said.
