With all the LED Lighting we have available , maybe they should put up new sign out there. Make It 20 X 20. Unreal..

I believe this is the rescue this article is talking about. 2 NYPD CRC officers rescued the teen using ladders, after discussing with Parks officers. It also notes that it's the same pond that 2 teens fell into on Sunday (that's 3 in 24 hours) and 7 fell into in February. Tperez102, to your point, there are apparently "17 bilingual safety signs around the pond warning people about thin ice."
