A sheriff’s officer who threw off his gear and dived into a frozen pond to save an 8-year-old Utah boy on Christmas Day refused to be labeled a hero on Tuesday.
The officer, Washington County sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron Thompson, arrived at the frozen pond in New Harmony, in the southern part of the state, after the boy’s friend called for help late Monday afternoon, authorities said. The boy, whose name hasn’t been made public, was chasing his dog when he fell through the ice, authorities said. His condition hasn’t been disclosed. Thompson suffered only cuts, bruises and symptoms of hypothermia, and he was back at work Tuesday.
