PARK RAPIDS -- Mark Harmon admitted that New Year's Day call to wife Kim was one of the hardest of his life.

He and his father had taken Mark's three kids and a cousin ice fishing out on Fish Hook Lake. Their 4-year-old had fallen through the ice in the middle of the lake.


"I heard her screaming," said Julia Harmon, 7, who looked to see sister Alessia flailing and up to her armpits in icy water.

Indeed, Alessia was screaming her head off.
