Caught on camera: Man jumps into icy river to save his dog

POLICE 93 Year Old Man Dies Rescuing Dog in Vt. Pond

The journalists who captured McIver saving Cosmo were working on a story about the dangers of thin ice.

Angela Jung, a reporter for the local news outlet, was just getting ready to do a piece on how risky is to thread over the pond's surface when it's frozen.

A man in Canada braved frozen water to save his dog, plunging through ice as he struggled to get it out of the water.

CTV News had set up a camera in the off-leash park to tape a segment about an uptick in emergency crews responding to ice rescues.

The duo managed to make it out safely, soaked to the skin and shivering.

"I think most people would do the same for their dog". The city's firefighters said since Thursday they had been called to three ice rescues. "You're not just going to let him die, right?"

"It's a split second thing", MacIver said to CTV. The best advice would be to stay away from areas of thin ice.
