Girl with autism (Rose Siegrist) rescued from frigid pond

UPDATE: Girl with autism rescued from cold pond, doing fine - CBS 21 News - Breaking news, sports and weather for the Harrisburg -York -Lancaster -Lebanon Pennsylvania area

Scary moments for the family of a 7-year-old child with autism when the little girl wandered off and was found neck-deep in a nearby pond.

Fortunately she is okay and was back at school this Monday morning, but certainly there was a need for serious concern over the weekend.

7-year-old Ivy Rose Siegrist, of Clay Township, wandered away from her grandmother's apartment just before 5 o’ clock last night while her grandmother was in the bathroom.

A neighbor in Penn Township's Meadows East apartment complex called police when she saw the child enter a nearby pond. Police responded and rescued the little girl from frigid neck-deep waters.
