The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office and Rescue Squad saved a man and dog after they became stuck on the ice at Sand Lake on Saturday.

According to a news release from the Sheriff's Office, a dog wandered out onto the ice and broke through. The owner fell through himself in about 3 feet of water after he tried to rescue his dog but fell through himself in about 3 feet of water. He then returned back to shore. Another neighbor then used a canoe to go out onto the ice and pulled the dog into the canoe where he became stranded with the dog. A St. Louis County Rescue Squad member, using a dry suit, walked the boat out to the canoe and retrieved the neighbor and dog and brought them to shore. No one required any medical attention. The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office strongly discourages going out on the ice when it is so thin. The St. Louis County Rescue Squad, Pike Sandy Fire and First Responders, Virginia Fire and Ambulance all assisted in the call.
