HINGHAM, Mass. -- Firefighters went out on thin ice Friday afternoon to rescue a dog that fell into the slushy water.
Olly, a 2-year-old black lab, ran onto the ice after some geese when he got stranded 100 feet into Hingham Harbor.
Firefighters went out onto the unsafe ice to rescue Olly.
"I said come on buddy, you got to give me a hand and he actually had enough energy to come towards me," said Jim Sheard, of the Hingham Fire Dept.
Sheard said that they were able to make a connection, but at this point they were both exhausted.
"I was able to pull his collar underneath my hands and his leash wrapped around my foot, so I had two points of connection with the animal," said Sheard.
Two other firefighters worked hard to bring Sheard and Olly to land.
Olly was taken to a truck to warm up and then taken to the vet in good condition.
"Dogs definitely have a sense that your there to help," said Sheard.
