Daring Rescue Of Dog Trapped On Frozen Lake
A team of rescue workers risked their own lives to save a dog who had become stranded on frozen Lake Erie in Michigan.
One emergency worker was seen rubbing the animal to keep it warm as another arrived on a boat near Brownstown Township.
The dog was dragged onboard as another rescuer, who was holding on to the outside of the small boat, was seen falling through the ice repeatedly.
Once safely on shore, the rescue workers successfully gathered up the cold animal and carried it to a waiting ambulance.
what do you think?
Awww such a touching story.....
They should do the owner for allowing this to happen
They should do the idiotic owners
"Do" them?! Oo-er!

In such a cruel, heartless world it is lovely to hear about such a touching story.
Nice story. But I can't help wondering why the man in the yellow suit chose to walk on thin ice rather than just get into the boat!
Sorry Nick but there is nothing to suggest that the owner did anything wrong here! Its easy for us understand the difference between solid land and ice but not for a dog, indeed it would appear that the owner did not simply walk out on the ice as many do and then get into difficulties themselves.
Allow me to beg your indulgence then why do the miscreant owner let a dog loose knowing there was an icey lake your welcome
"Miscreant"? "Idiotic"?! Poor Nick - has someone thrown their poop scoop at you?! You sound like you've had a bad experience with a dog owner.
Ambulance! Awww, bless. I read stories where couples or even more people have died trying to save their pets and wish they hadn't risked it. However, then I look at the winkly, sad face to the top left of this post and know full well I'd do the same.
The really sad thing is the owners so often die in the freezing water, while their pet struggles to safety and an uncertain future.
I know, moonfleet. Very sad. I keep mine far from harm (she is clumsy, poor egg) and hope for the best!
Amazing act of compassion for a defenceless animal.Well done to the crew.
