By Associated Press

The Frederick County Sheriff's Office says a 6-year-old boy is dead after falling through the ice on a lake near Buckeystown.

Cpl. Jennifer Bailey says the child drowned early Monday evening after he and a 7-year-old boy fell through the ice on a flooded quarry on the property of a Vietnamese Buddhist Temple on Manor Woods Road.

Bailey says the 7-year-old was able to escape the frigid water to summon help.

She says the 6-year-old was pulled from the water by a family member.

Bailey says the boy was pronounced dead at Children's National Medical Center in Washington.

Man, poor kid. That ice couldn't have been thick at all, based on the freeze/thaw cycles we've been experiencing lately.
