Boy who fell into icy pond to be released from hospital Friday

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Two weeks after a Bartlett boy fell into an icy pond and spent more than 10 minutes underwater, family members say he is coming home.

Thursday, family and friends of young Reese Wagner said their prayers have been answered.

Friday morning the family will bring Wagner home, first taking a "detour" through Bonne Linn elementary, where students will celebrate his release from the hospital.

Two weeks ago, Wagner was with two friends playing football on a frozen pond in Bartlett when he fell into eight to ten feet of icy water.

One of those friends made the 911 call.

Miraculously, Reese was still alive after being under all that time.
