The video below features a dog named Boo. Little Boo makes rounds every night and says hello to his neighborhood friends. This 13-year-old pooch is really famous, and almost everyone in the neighborhood thinks of him as a best friend. But one day the little guy went missing, and they found him whimpering for help while struggling for his life on an ice-coated pond in Greenville near Carriage Road.
People heard a dog barking and crying for help and discovered he had fallen through the ice in the local pond. He was hanging on, but half his body was in the water. He belonged to a family in the neighborhood, and everyone wanted him to be rescued.
Boo couldn’t make it out of the water on his own. He couldn’t get a hold on the ice to pull himself out. But soon enough a team of firemen from Elsmere and Cranston Heights fire departments arrived. They knew it was going to be a hard rescue.
Despite all the odds against them, they got a small boat and started crashing into the ice with their oars so they could row out to Boo. They got closer and finally managed to grab Boo and take him to safety and warm him up.
Boo is safe now, and no doubt has learned his lesson in wandering onto the ice. What a brave little guy he is and these firefighters are real heroes!
