Four children are in critical condition in hospital after falling through ice in England, West Midlands Police confirmed.
The children were pulled from ice at a nature park in Solihull, England on Sunday afternoon.
All four children are currently in critical condition in hospital.

Specialist-trained firefighters then pulled all four children from the water. They received immediate life-support care from emergency services.

West Midlands Police issued a statement following the accident;
"Four children were rescued from the lake and subsequently taken to hospital.
"On behalf of West Midlands Police we understand how distressing this is for families and the wider community.
"We are doing everything we can to support all those involved."
People need to stop judging the parents of these poor children in the Solihull lake incident. Anyone who’s been a parent knows that despite all your efforts they don’t always do what you say, don’t often see danger and go along with their friends. Not the time for snide comments.
