A seven-year-old Pataskala boy remains at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus after falling into an icy pond last night.

A spokeswoman with the hospital says she hasn’t been given consent to release information on Cyrus Hanson’s condition yet.

Cyrus was at a family birthday party in Laurelville yesterday, when he and another boy snuck outside unattended. Cyrus fell through the icy water, and the Laurelville Fire Department says it took crews about an hour to finally pull him out. It says Cyrus was unconscious as crews attempted to work on him before he and his mother were taken by MedFlight to the hospital.
