Dog rescued from icy pond

ANDERSON, Ind. — Dive teams and rescue agencies were called to action Wednesday afternoon to save a dog that fell through a sheet of ice on a pond.

A 911 call was made at about 2:30 p.m. when observers in the 3300 block of Main Street noticed the dog run onto the ice after some ducks. Witnesses said the ice around the dog, nearly 50 feet from shore, shattered and the chocolate Labrador fell through.

The dog paddled in the icy water for about 15 minutes as rescue crews arrived and slid a raft onto the pond with rescue diver Kyle Amos of the Anderson Fire Department. After Amos secured the dog, the crew pulled the raft ashore.

The unnamed dog was transported to Northwood Veterinarian for treatment. Office attendant Christal Hughes said the dog walked in on its own strength and seemed to be fine. She said the dog would be kept at the office overnight for observation.
