Tulsa firefighters pulled five juveniles out of a pond behind a business in the 4100 block of Dawson Road Tuesday afternoon.

Video from Osage SkyNews 6 showed firefighters loading one of the boys into a boat and bringing him to shore.

The body of water is a large pond behind a brick manufacturing factory. The boys were swimming around a small island in the pond and appeared to be unhurt, but making sure they were safe required a large rescue operation on the part of Tulsa firefighters.    

Police say the pond is private property and the boys did not have permission to use it.

Firefighters say four of the boys came to shore on their own, but the fifth refused because he was scared of the police.

Firefighters brought him to shore in their rescue boat.
