Police identify teens killed in fall through ice

DACULA -- Police have named two teens who died Saturday after falling through the ice on a partially frozen pond in suburban Atlanta.

Fourteen-year-old Jacob Bullock and 13-year-old Marvens Mathurin were eighth-graders at Osborne Middle School.

Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services Capt. Tommy Rutledge said that two of the boys who got trapped in the pond were unresponsive and unconscious when rescue workers pulled them from the water.

Rescuers said the three, ages 13 to 15, were playing and sliding on the semi-frozen pond in Dacula when the ice broke Saturday afternoon.

Rutledge says one of the boys escaped, but the other two got trapped under the ice and spent nearly an hour in the frigid water.
