MINNEAPOLIS, (Reuters) - Five young children were pulled from a near-freezing pond in the Minneapolis area on Thursday, about a half hour after the car they were aboard had plunged in, officials said.


The children were unresponsive after being rescued from the car, which had veered off a rain-slicked highway ramp and slid down an embankment into a retention pond, said Jamie Zwilling, spokesman for St. Louis Park, a suburb just west of Minneapolis.
