In Murfreesboro, Tennessee, a woman dived into a pool of icy water and pulled her dog to safety after he accidentally slipped and fell in while playing outside.

According to Jennie Esker Tatum’s social media page, Sid a rescued pit bull, had been frolicking in the backyard of their home with their goldendoodle, Olaf. As record temperatures and snowfall fell last week, the dogs took advantage of the opportunity to run around and expel some of their energy with a friendly chase game.

Luckily the family’s water pump had not been working; the pool wasn’t full but had frozen over, when Sid slipped and slid into the pool. Jennie had been watching the dogs play and ran out when she saw Sid fall into the pool. She jumped into the pool breaking the ice with her hands to find him, but at first didn’t see him.

Jennie got out of the pool to find Sid, and finally spotted him trapped under the ice; he had floated to the top where she saw him, dived in again and pulled him out. At that time Sid had been submerged for nearly a minute. She wrapped her arms around him and pulled the 50 pound pooch out of the pool.

At the time she didn’t know if Sid was still alive and carrying him in her arms, ran into the house and placed his lifeless body near the fireplace and began rubbing him. Neighbors were able to contact a veterinarian where Sid was then rushed. The dog spent the next day receiving oxygen and specialized care.

When Sid first arrived at the vet, his gums and tongue were purple, and his initial prognosis was poor. Still Sid who Jennie rescued five years ago when he was abandoned in her neighborhood, was rescued again by none other than his best friend.
