3 children die after falling into frozen lake in UK


LONDON –

Three young boys who fell through ice covering a lake in central England have died and a fourth remains hospitalized as meteorologists issued severe weather warnings for large parts of the UK.

Rescuers pulled the boys, aged eight, 10 and 11, from freezing waters on Sunday afternoon and transported them to West Midlands Hospital, around 100 miles (160 km) north of London. But they could not be revived after suffering cardiac arrest.

The fourth child, who is 6 years old, remains in critical condition. Rescuers searched throughout the night for two other children who were believed to have been with the group.

The news came as the Met Office, Britain’s national weather service, issued severe weather warnings for large parts of the country. Roads in the east and south-east of England were among the hardest hit. Some travelers have been stranded for hours due to the closure of the UK’s busiest motorway, the M25, which circles Greater London.

Gatwick and Stansted airports warned of flight delays on Monday, and London City airport said it was experiencing ‘some disruption’ as planes were not in position after flight cancellations on Sunday evening.

The country has recorded its coldest night of the year so far in northern Scotland at minus 15.7 degrees Celsius (3.7 degrees Fahrenheit).

“We know the weather forecast for the next few days is expected to be extremely cold,” said West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service Area Commander Richard Stanton. “Please, adults and children, stay away from open water. Under no circumstances should you venture onto ice, no matter how thick or safe you think that ice may be. .”
