Waupun Officer Falls Through Ice On Harris Mill Pond

(Waupun) Waupun Police are warning residents to stay off the Harris Mill Pond after an officer fell through the thin ice. That officer was taken to Waupun Memorial Hospital as a precaution but is doing well according to department officials.

It happened Wednesday night. The officer was on patrol and saw two kids taking a picnic table out onto the ice. The officer was trying to get the table off of the pond when he fell through. Using a rope, a second officer was able to get that officer out.

Colder temperatures are forecasted through next Thursday but Waupun Police say not to be fooled by that there are many open water areas on the pond and the ice is thin.
