Two ice fishermen were rescued Thursday after falling through the ice on Chatfield Reservoir.

The two had walked about 80 feet from the shoreline in the Kingfisher Ponds area about noon when they broke through the ice.

One man was able to drag himself to the shore, while the other held onto the edge of the ice.

“The one man who was able to extricate himself went to get a tire and rope to rescue his friend. He then fell back in,” said Littleton Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Jeff Tasker.
