MOUNTAIN VIEW – A 911 call around 10 a.m. last Friday resulted in a response from the County Sheriff’s office, fire department, ambulance crew and other emergency personnel.
According to the call, some kids were playing on the ice on the pond behind Riverbend in Mountain View. The caller said, the kids were hollering for someone to call 911 as one of them had fallen through the ice.
First to respond was Deputy Chrystal Scoggin as she was nearby. When asked about the incident a short time later, she said “It didn’t happen,” meaning no kid had fallen through the ice. After receiving the call, Scoggin drove to the area, talked to the caller and was taken to the pond. Nothing was found and no holes were seen in the ice on the pond. Emergency personnel also checked out the river.
Scoggin later talked to some boys who admitted being loud and playing on the pond. They told her they didn’t call for help. They also told her they were scared when they heard the police coming so they left and went home.
