But the task was not easy, and the four American police officers drowned for some time before they could be rescued.
And the British “Sky News” network reported, on Saturday, that the four officer, in addition to the teenager, came out of this ordeal unharmed.
A videotape documented the approach of police officers to the teenager, who was in a hole in the middle of the frozen lake, before they were stuck with him.
A short while later, another policeman approached and tried to pull his colleagues through a rope he was with, but he quickly fell into the freezing water.
Local media reported that the incident occurred last Wednesday, north of Salt Lake City.
