A risky rescue was carried out after a dog was stuck on a frozen lake.
A team of bystanders risked their own lives trying to save a dog that was stranded on Lake Erie in Michigan.
In footage one rescuer was seen rubbing the animal to keep it warm, while another arrived on a boat near the Brownstown Township.
The dog was dragged onto the boat while one of the people attending to the animal was seen struggling through the breaking ice.
Once on the shore, the canine was taken to a nearby ambulance for treatment.
