Firefighters Rescue Dog From Freezing Water

DENVER (CBS4)– Firefighers in Denver rescued a dog from Berkeley Lake in northeast Denver Friday afternoon.

Copter4 was over the rescue as it happened at about 4:40 p.m. At times the dog seemed too exhausted to keep swimming or try to pull itself up onto the thin ice.

Two firefighters raced on the collapsing ice and in the frigid water from both sides of the lake to try to reach the dog. One firefighter was able to reach him, pull him to safety and swim back to shore.

How the dog ended up in the lake or where the dog’s owner was is being investigated.
