Watch: Amazing video of dog being saved from icy water

 A yellow Labrador retriever, who inexplicably jumped into ice-clogged waters of Betsie Bay in Michigan on Tuesday morning, has been reunited with her owner thanks to the efforts of a U.S. Coast Guard crew who came to her rescue, reported Fox 8 News.

Ice rescue crews from Coast Guard Station in Frankfort, Michigan, sprang into action, donning protective gear, and jumping into the frigid water to swim through the broken ice to reach the struggling dog. The dog was in the water for nearly a half hour before she was back on shore and bundled into warming blankets.

The dramatic rescue effort was captured on video - the footage reveals the dangerous conditions, and the dedication of the rescue crew. On Tuesday afternoon, the Animal Welfare League of Benzie County posted a photo of the dog, who had been reunited with her owner, on their Facebook page, along with the words:

"Dog found in Betsie Bay is back home safe. Thanks to the U.S. Coast Guard."
