Dog rescued from ice on Lake Michigan (Video)
Stranded Pup Is Saved After 4-Hour Rescue On Frozen Lake Michigan
A heroic ice rescue, a dog stranded on the ice in Lake Michigan and a team of firefighters and animal control worked to save her.
2-year-old Genevieve is safe tonight after a very stressful 24 hours. She ran off after her owners let her out in the morning.
Along Lake Michigan in Cudahy, ice, wind and whip along the lakeshore. Genevieve was spotted stranded on the ice, about 150 feet from shore.
Humane Officer Robin Stroiber was first to arrive. But the job was too tough for animal control. Firefighters from Cudahy and St. Francis came in for the rescue.
Determined to save her, the firefighters went in the water and along the ice. They worked in the bitter cold for about 4 hours — finally getting the little pup back to land and be thankful that determination made for a safe, healthy and happy dog. She is expected to be reunited with her owners soon and picked up from animal control.
