A group of people and their dogs were having fun on a cold winter day, when suddenly one of the dogs could be seen in the distance, out on the water..
He fell through the ice and an unidentified woman jumped in without thought of her own safety.
She pushed through the ice to the dog, and carried it back to land.
This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen with my own eyes. A dog went out on the ice and fell through at Trout Lake and without hesitating this woman went out in the water breaking the ice with her hands and rescued the dog!?! It wasn't even her dog. I'm so inspired and so happy it all worked out for the best. I saw the dog fall through the ice and screamed out. Community members all rushed to help and support her. We were all calling the dog's name so it would keep swimming. She was rushed to a house in the neighbourhood and put in a warm bath while the paramedics were enroute. A few of us then had to chase this woman's dog around in circles in the park as she looked for her owner. We finally got her and brought back to her owner. Wow... #dogs #eastVan #picoftheday #hero #yvr
