Tuesday 4th August 2015 – 3pm – Chris Kowalik.


Two children and a dog had to be rescued today after they all ended up stranded on an island in the middle of a lake.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Sutton Park shortly after 1.15pm today. An ambulance crew and a paramedic area support officer attended. The fire service also attended.

“A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A 13 year old boy had gone into the water to rescue a dog. Then, an 18 year old girl went in after the boy.

“They got to an island in the middle of the lake from where the fire service took them to dry land. The boy and the girl were checked over and warmed up in the back of the ambulance before being discharged at the scene.

“We warn people not to go into open waters such as this. The water is cold, you don’t know how deep it is. There were weeds and silt in this lake but we don’t know what else is in the water.”
