Boy saves brother after fall through ice in NJ

Authorities in southern New Jersey say a 7-year-old boy helped save his 10-year-old brother, grabbing the older sibling after he fell through the ice and holding onto him until help arrived.

Tristan Lavin kept ahold of Sage Lavin until police got there and pulled the boy from the frigid lagoon in Margate on Sunday.

Police say the brothers took boogie boards onto the bay and were standing on the ice when it gave way under Sage.

A resident's dog alerted her to trouble on the bay and she called police, who arrived quickly.

Police wrapped Sage in blankets and he was taken to a hospital before he returned home.
