DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Four children who fell through the ice in Roxborough Park on Tuesday afternoon are now out of the water, according to a tweet from the West Metro Fire.

It's not yet clear which body of water the children fell in.

The department initially said three children were either rescued or got out of the water themselves. A search began for the fourth child, a young teenage boy, who was located by a dive team shortly afterward, according to West Metro Fire.
