Father and Son Escape Icy Waters 

Maine officials are advising outdoors enthusiasts to check for thin ice after a truck carrying a Norridgewock man and his son went through the ice into a pond in central Maine.The Maine Warden Service says a truck operated by Linwood Ledger crashed through the ice on North Pond in Smithfield on Friday afternoon. Ledger and his son, Michael, were able to get out of the truck and the water without injury.Officials say the truck is submerged except for the plow on the front that got caught on the ice. Wardens say Ledger told them he assumed the ice was thick enough for his vehicle, and that he had hauled a trailer with an ice shack onto the pond the day before the accident.
