Fiefighters from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Station 25 in Reston saved Angel, a Chow, when Angel fell through the ice on Lake Thoreau in Thursday morning.

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

    Good training for the rescue workers.

      This wasn’t training, this was their job and they did it well. Calling it training seems patronizing.

  • Good happens

    I was ready to come out and chop some ice but then I realized I was falling behind on my recipe, sorry maybe next time

    • Rey Della playa

  • Heh

    If it had been a cat, he would have used the long stick to push it under and hold it there…

    • Doesn’t Suffer Fools Gladly
