There is a stern warning to stay off icy ponds after five teens fell through the ice in two separate incidents in New Jersey. Two of the teens were killed. There is a sign that says “Danger…Stay off the ice,” but two teens fell into the icy pond at Carteret Avenue and Cypress Street. According to a statement from the Carteret Fire Department, they rescued one teen but were “Unsuccessful” in rescuing the second teen. They did eventually remove him. David Tillburg, 15, was pronounced dead at Newark’s University Hospital. His family posted a GoFundMe to help cover his funeral services.
