Family Dog Rescued From Thick Ice by Michigan Firefighters



Firefighters in Michigan were seen on video risking their lives to save a dog that had fallen through thin ice.


When firefighters arrived at the lake, the dog was still barking and struggling to climb out of the water, but he was unable to grab onto the ice and pull himself out, according to White Lake Fire Chief Gregory Holman.

Personnel donned Ice Rescue suits and using other safety equipment “made the rescue” of the canine.


The animal was then turned over to MCAC for proper advanced care and safe return to its owners. Thank you to the residents on shore, Muskegon County Animal Control Officer and Whitehall Police Chief Squiers for the assistance on this alarm.
