Daring rescue saves beloved dog from icy death
When Bart the coonhound fell through fragile ice into the frigid waters of Michigan’s Huron River, Good Samaritan Lance Eicher waded in to pull the freezing dog to safety — heroically risking his own life.
Forced to choose between staying warm and watching a dog freeze in the icy waters of Michigan’s Huron River, Lance Eicher decided to play the hero.
Even when the good samaritan fell through the ice himself, his primary concern was keeping the dog warm.
“I just wasn't thinking,” Eicher told WDIV. “I just wanted to try to rescue the friend of the family.”
