Labrador Rescued From Icy River

Four years ago, a Labrador Retriever called Charlie was rescued from the Indian River in Theresa, New York. Over the weekend the dramatic video of his rescue went viral. While winter is a long way off, this story is still worth sharing.

The yellow Lab had ventured onto the ice covered river, fell through the ice and then could not get himself out. A local man heard the dog and called the Theresa Fire and Indian River Ambulance rescue for help. Watch the video below of the brave first responders retrieving the dog from the freezing water and then caring for him on the way to getting medical further attention. Charlie was treated overnight for hypothermia at a local vet practice and thankfully recovered fully.
