EVERETT, Wash. —

Quick action by nearby residents rescued two children who fell through ice Sunday afternoon on Beverly Lake in south Everett.

Lissa Arnold and Richard Oleson told The Daily Herald ( http://bit.ly/VL1SuC) they saw them from the window of their lakeside apartment where they still happened to have a rubber raft and 300 feet of rope on the porch.

Olseon was able to pull the children into the raft.

Arnold says the ice punched holes in the raft and it was deflating, but other neighbors pulled them to shore and warmed them in blankets.

The boy and girl, each about 12-years old, were in the water about 10 minutes. Everett Fire Marshal Rick Robinson says they were evaluated by medics and didn't need to go to a hospital.
