Car drives onto frozen Cass Pond

January 27, 2013

WOONSOCKET — A city woman’s morning traffic mishap landed her stranded in her car on frozen Cass Pond Friday morning and also the target of a rescue by a Woonsocket High School student.
Witnesses saw the car operated by Viengxay Kmon crash through a guardrail near the merge of Elm Street and Cass Avenue at about 7:56 a.m. and then roll down an embankment out onto the ice of the pond nearby Woonsocket High School.
Stuck in her vehicle, Kmon, 52, was rescued by Villa Novan High School football player and senior Kyle Mulvey who happened to be on his way to school, according to reports on the incident. Mulvey walked around to the more frozen side of the shallow trout fishing pond in the city park and got Kmon’s vehicle door open. He then got out of her vehicle while it sat on the ice and walked her to shore.
Mulvey won praise from both witnesses and high school officials for his quick thinking action to help Kmon.
Deputy Fire Chief Paul S. Russell said Saturday that no one was hurt in the incident. The car was removed from the ice without harm to Cass Pond.
