     SIDNEY, Nebraska (AP) - Officials in a western Nebraska city are crediting several city employees for saving two children from drowning in an icy park pond.
     Sidney police say Park Cemetery Superintendent Tom Von Seggern  jumped into the freezing water Friday afternoon to save the two brothers at Legion Park. The first boy fell through while chasing after a pet dog and the second boy went through after trying to save his brother.
     Four other city employees then helped pull Von Seggern and the boys to safety.
     The elementary-aged children and two employees were transported to a local hospital as a safety precaution. They have since been released.
     The dog is fine and never fell through the ice.
