Rescue workers save dog stuck on icy Lake Erie, Michigan

Rescue workers managed to save a dog which got trapped out on the ice in Michigan on Thursday.

The dog had wandered out onto a frozen part of Lake Erie, near Brownstown Township, and had been unable to return to shore.

Rescue crews responded after the dog's owner, unable to reach the animal, rang 911.

A rescue worker tried to keep the dog warm before it was eventually lifted into a boat and taken back to shore.
