Woman falls through thin ice while trying to rescue dog

Sheriff’s deputies in Warren County say a woman and her dog fell through the ice Monday morning on Glen Lake.

The Bay Ridge Fire Chief tells NewsChannel 13 the dog fell first, and his owner went after him.

Deputies were able to get them both to shore, and they did not need medical help.

The fire chief says the ice is not thick enough yet. He says you should never assume it’s okay.

Also, don’t attempt an ice rescue on your own — call for help. Fire crews have the right gear to handle a cold water rescue.
