Don Chatten from New York State was walking his two dogs in Buffalo when a woman approached him and asked him to find her little dog. The man agreed to help the woman without hesitation. However, when Don found the dog, he realized that it was impossible to delay with the help.
The point was that the dog fell into the icy water in Ellicott Creek Park. The man acted promptly – he called 911, but did not wait for rescuers and decided to act on his own! Don thought that he could crawl on the ice, but the ice cracked and Don was waist-deep in icy water.
“I was a bit confident because I knew the depth of this place. We used to come here a lot when we were kids,” Don told WKBW News. Don went up to the dog and picked up the frozen animal. The man had already saved the dog when rescuers arrived. They took the frozen dog to the vet for a checkup. Here you can see the heroic deed of a man.
