A passer-by rescued a four-year-old boy from a retention pond in Indianapolis after his family’s SUV apparently slid from an icy bridge into the frigid water.

The vehicle was one of two that drove into the pond around shortly before 6.30pm Monday evening.

Roads were icy after a wintry Midwest storm brought wet snow and strong winds.

The fire department says the boy’s mother, 37, told authorities that her SUV hit a patch of ice before plummeting down an embankment.

She was driving a Dodge Nitro with her three children, 17, 11 and the four-year-old.

Police said the unidentified Good Samaritan swam to the SUV and carried the small boy to medics before leaving.

Video from WRTV shows fire crews using a boat to rescue the mother and her 11- and 17-year-old daughters, who had climbed onto the roof of the vehicle.
