Boro Park Boy Rescued After Igloo Collapses on Him

BROOKLYN -

A 7-year-old boy building an igloo in the courtyard of his Boro Park apartment building Wednesday night was trapped in the snow when his construction collapsed on him.

According to a Hatzolah volunteer, the boy’s friend ran to his father and told him of the emergency. The father called Hatzolah, who evacuated the boy from his icy cage and took him to Lutheran Medical Center.

The incident took place in the Tudor Court, on 42nd Street and 15th Ave., at around 7:00 p.m. The boy suffered minor injuries but is doing fine.
