Fairfax County Fire and Rescue’s Swift Water Rescue Team was called to a neighborhood on Lake Thoreau Wednesday morning to rescue Angel, a Chow who fell through the ice.

Witnesses said the dog was about 10-15 feet from the shore off of Turtle Pond Drive when the ice cracked and he fell in the lake.

Firefighters rushed to scene and dove into the icy water, where they brought Angel back to safety at about 8:45 a.m.

Reston Now will have video of the rescue shortly.
