A dog was rescued from an icy pond in the city of Lone Tree, Colorado on Saturday (January 12).
Video provided to Reuters shows a firefighter dressed in a dry suit and attached to a safety rope crawling towards the dog. He is then seen assisting the canine up onto all-fours before both make the journey back over the thin layer of ice to safety.
""Bri" is one lucky pup!" said South Metro Fire Rescue in a Facebook post, adding that they had been alerted by 911 callers.
