Man jumps into icy water to save dog from frozen pond

McIver soaked with freezing water was able to rescue Cosmo and handed him off to an onlooker after a local news reporter happened to be on the scene and phoned authorities

A Canadian man was caught on camera plunging into a frozen pond to rescue his dog after the pet fell through the ice.

The dog's owner, Duncan Mciver saw his pup slip under the ice and didn't hesitate to save him.

A 93-year-old Rutland man died Saturday afternoon after he tried to rescue his dog, which was stuck in the ice on Leffert's Pond off Wildcat Road.

Once he had "Cosmo" in hand, they broke through the ice again.

Ironically, a news crew was taping nearby, doing a story on the dangers of thin ice.

"It's a split second thing", MacIver said to CTV.

Earlier this month, firefighters rescued a youth who wandered onto thin ice in Ted Hole Park.
