A thirsty dog got more than he bargained for when he tried drinking from the edge of Lake Michigan..
Lucky for the pooch, a policeman had been called to the scene of a minor traffic accident.
The dog stopped to try and lap up some water from the lake but didn’t anticipate the depth to the water surface.
Now panicking, the stray could be seen splashing water viciously as he tried to get back out of the lake.
With no hesitation, Officer Farris ran straight to the dog and dived onto the floor to scoop up the startled pup. Luckily the dog remained my quite calm and didn’t show any signs of biting or mauling to the policeman.
When he was dragged out, the officers gave him a friendly pat of reassurance to make sure he was okay. Well done to these quick-thinking heroes.
