DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) — Rescue crews in Michigan saved a dog's life.
Wyandotte police said the labradoodle had gotten away from its owner while they were on a walk Monday. It ended up in the icy Detroit River.
The dog managed to climb onto a chunk of ice. However, it continued to drift away.
The rescue team managed to move the ice close to the riverbank and use a "catchpole" to secure the dog.
"The rescuer did this while standing on a slippery ladder that was submerged in the river while his coworkers held onto him via a rope," Wyandotte police said on Facebook.
The dog is expected to be OK.
