Ohio deputy makes arrest after fall into icy pond

An Ohio deputy chasing two burglary suspects fell through ice into a pond but still helped make the arrest.

Summit County deputies were summoned early Tuesday on a report that two people had broken into a couple's home in Green and made off with a laptop computer and cell phone.

Neighbors told Cleveland's WJW-TV they observed officers following footprints in the snow to track the suspects.

During the chase that followed, Deputy Dan Cuckler stumbled through ice on a pond, finding himself up to his neck in frigid water.

Sheriff's Inspector Bill Holland says another deputy helped pull Cuckler out and they persistently continued their search.

A man and a woman were arrested about an hour later. They've been charged with burglary.
