I think we are all in need of feel-good stories lately, given the state of the world.
Last winter, a fire chief from Canada shared a video on Facebook of several firefighters and RCMP rescuing someone’s pet dog.
The dog had wandered onto the ice and fell in while he was walking off leash.
They brought the dog to shore by securing one of the firefighters with rope and he crawled onto the ice. The firefighter also fell through, but because of the rope he was able to grab the dog so they could both be pulled to shore.
This serves as a reminder to everyone who lives near water that freezes that ice can be dangerous. Don’t let your dogs on the ice!
From the Facebook post:
“STAY OFF THE ICE!!
Yesterday afternoon, our firefighters were busy at the creek, rescuing someone’s pet. They allowed their dog to run off leash when it ventured our onto the ice and fell through. Quick action calling the fire department helped save their pet. Please keep your pets and children away from the Creek, the ice is thin and it is NOT safe.”
