Firefighters Save Dog From Icy Pond
WILDWOOD, MO (KPLR)-Firefighters with the Monarch Fire Protection District pulled off a dramatic rescue Saturday. They were able to rescue of a dog that had fallen into the icy water of a pond in Wildwood.
The pooch, named Gretchen, had likely walked out on the ice on the pond, about 60 feet from shore, where she fell into the water.
