An 11-year-old boy died Tuesday after he fell through the ice of a pond in a Queens park, according to the city police department.
Police confirmed Anthony Perez’s death Tuesday evening.
Officials said he fell through the ice in Forest Park sometime before 4:05 p.m.
Officials said Perez and another child were out on the frozen pond despite a sign for thin ice being near it.
Perez had traveled out about 50 feet before the ice gave way and he fell through, the city fire department said. The other child then went to get help.
