A caller told dispatchers that three boys fell through the ice of a pond Monday in Gaithersburg. While two managed to scramble to safety, he told authorities that one child – who turned out to be 10-year-old DJ McMullen – was in trouble.
D'Angelo McMullen and two other children fell through a thin sheet of ice on a lake in Gaithersburg on Monday evening, authorities say. He died as a result of his injuries.
Large amounts of fish were discovered dead in the Constitutional Gardens pond at the National Mall in D.C. Wednesday night, possibly victims of the algae in the pond.
