Ong is being held in the Denton County Jail, officials said.
Family members have been notified and are cooperating with the police investigation, authorities said.
A witness at the retention pond told KXAS, “I saw what I thought was an accident but it turned out, I guess, a little bit more than an accident. I’m not really religious but if I was, I’d pray for the family. I hope that they are okay.”
