A Wellesley, Massachusetts family nearly had a tragic holiday when their 5-year old Golden Retriever, Crosby, fell into the frozen Charles River and became trapped by ice, unable to swim to shore.
Her owners frantically called 911 who dispatched Wellesley firefighters to the scene using the phone’s GPS location services.
Firefighters donned cold water survival suits and entered the frozen river, broke up the solid layer of ice, and pulled the frightened girl to safety. Then, quickly dried her off with towels and warmed her under a fire blanket.
And, it was all captured on tape! Check out the video below to see the heroes of the Wellesley Fire Department save Crosby’s life and give her family a truly happy holiday.
Please, don’t walk your pets near frozen lakes or rivers, and do not let them wander onto the ice, no matter how strong and solid you believe it to be. Crosby was a very lucky girl.
