THE BACKYARD -- A boy gets a bed and Snedeker takes a dip.

Joey Jones from Hazleton will be getting a new bed this new year, all thanks to an anonymous donor in Moscow.

Meteorologist Joe Snedeker took a plunge into the Backyard pond early Friday on Newswatch 16 This Morning. Joe made good on a deal that he would jump in if viewers donated to the special bed for Jones. The final donation included a $9,000 check fromĀ  a donor who wished to remain anonymous.

The family plans to order the bed on Monday.

Thank you to all who donated.
