Indianapolis - A man and his dog had to be rescued from the water Thursday afternoon.
It happened at 72nd and College near Park Tudor at Williams Creek, a small tributary the feeds into the White River which is parallel to 74th Street.
The man's dog ran into the water and the owner tried to get the animal. Fire fighters rescued the man, but it took them over 40 minutes to free the dog, an eight-year-old Golden Retriever whose name is Hoss.
The dog appeared to be stuck in the middle of Williams Creek. A fire fighter reached Hoss, which at first appeared to have its head stuck under a log. The fire fighter freed Hoss from the debris.
Fire fighters on the shore used a ladder and a small boat to create a pulley system. The fire fighter in the creek placed the dog on the boat and fire fighters on the shore pulled the dog to safety. The dog tried to run, but fire fighters were able to put a leash on the animal.
Several fire fighters from two departments were involved in the effort. The owner, 29-year-old Kyle Burkett, was never in danger, but the dog was trapped and he could not get the dog out of the debris himself. Both owner and dog are fine.
