“Bri” is one lucky dog. The crew from South Metro Fire Rescue saved the adorable pup from the icy waters of a pond, in Lakewood, Colorado on Saturday. The crew from Firehouse 34 were quick to arrive with one rescuer already dressed in a yellow dry suit as he ventured out onto the thin ice, safely secured by a rope, to help pluck Bri out of the frigid waters.
According to the social media page of the South Metro Fire Rescue, someone called 911 after spotting the dog unable to get out of the water. One fireman, dressed in his dry suit, which are specially designed to protect the men during these daring rescue operations, crawled out to the spot. In less than ten seconds Bri was safely out of the ice shaking it off.
What makes this rescue even more heartwarming is the part where the dog is rescued, but at that moment it seems Bri tried to return the good deed and drag his rescuer out of the water.
