Five small children pulled unresponsive from pond in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Five small children were pulled unresponsive from a car that plunged into a cold retention pond on Thursday morning in a suburb of Minneapolis.

The car veered off a rain-slicked highway ramp and down an embankment into a pond that was near freezing, according to Jamie Zwilling, spokesman for St. Louis Park, a suburb west of Minneapolis. The driver, a 23-year-old woman, was able to escape and scream for help.

It was not immediately known how long the children, who were taken to a nearby trauma center, were underwater, according to Zwilling. (Reporting by Mary Wisniewski and Todd Melby in Minneapolis; Editing by Gerald E. McCormick)
