Posted: Updated:
CATOOSA, Oklahoma -

After hours of searching, crews recovered a man from an icy Catoosa pond Thursday night.  

Catoosa and Limestone fire departments responded to a home in the 200 block of West Deer Valley the afternoon of Thursday, January 04, 2018.

Catoosa Police said a UPS man was making his rounds when he saw someone ice skating on the frozen pond. They said the driver continued to make deliveries and when he came back he saw a hole in the ice.

Police said the driver went onto the ice to try and rescue someone he believed had fallen through but he got stuck.

Firefighters rescued the driver and he was transported to the hospital. Police said he was cold but is expected to be okay.

The man found in the pond has not yet been identified.
