Firefighters Heroically Rescue Dog And His Owner Who Went To Save Him After Falling Through The Ice

Firefighters rescued a scared dog after it fell through the ice on a lake in Illinois. The dramatic rescue was caught on video.

The Harlem-Roscoe firefighters arrived on the scene of Legend Lakes in Roscoe to find a dog that had fallen through the ice. The dog owner, seen in the video wearing a yellow jacket, had been trying to use a kayak to get to the dog over the ice.

As the dog owner attempted to rescue his pup, the ice broke beneath him and he fell into the water, his kayak overturning before he reached the dog.

Firefighters were able to successfully rescue of both the owner and the dog.

Lt. Justin Mayton, in a Mustang cold water suit, took another Kayak that was on the scene out to the owner of the dog and the owner was pulled back to the shore. Lt. Mayton continued on to the dog to rescue it and firefighters on shore pulled him and the dog to safety.
