(COLUMBUS DISPATCH) A man who plunged into an ice-choked pond to rescue a 5-year-old boy at an East Side apartment complex last night ended up losing his own life.

The boy survived but was in critical condition at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

“He’s a hero,” Tammy Rhodes said of 30-year-old James R. Jenkins. “He tried. He tried so hard.”
