A New York firefighter rescued a dog from a chilly situation.
Lacey, a sheep dog, was chasing another dog and ended up falling into the Old Erie Canal and was unable to get out.
The fire department rushed to the scene and firefighter Patrick Maguire used a ladder to rescue the cold and wet dog. Maguire was up to his chest in cold water and was not dressed in water gear for the rescue.
Lacey’s owner said, “I carry the leash with me and she just took off across the water. She saw some dogs across the water.”
Lacey is doing well and has recovered from her extremely cold fall. Maguire said he is just happy to be in some dry clothes.
