Aaron D. Robinson died attempting to save Jairus A. Robinson from drowning, Cambridge, Maryland, February 11, 2007. At a point about 20 feet from the bank, Jairus, 8, broke through ice partially covering a pond at the housing development where his family lived. His brother Aaron, 12, student, was nearby on the bank with friends when they saw him in the water. Aaron immediately ran to the pond and made his way out on the ice toward Jairus. As he reached for him, Aaron also broke through the ice. Jairus submerged, as did Aaron, after a brief struggle. Police and rescue personnel responded shortly and removed the boys from the pond. They were taken to the hospital but could not be revived.
