A 3 year old terrier is back at home after a dramatic lake rescue by West Yorkshire Firefighters from Brighouse. Dog owner, David Parkinson, realised that his terrier was stranded on an island in the middle of an icy lake at the Crow Nest Golf Club, Coach Road while he was out walking his two dogs this morning.
The specialist water rescue team from Brighouse used an inflatable boat sled to reach the island but as firefighters landed, Molly jumped in the water.
He continued: “The owner did exactly the right thing in calling for help and not attempting to rescue his dog. Never walk on frozen waterways, no matter how safe you believe they are. We have the equipment and skills to respond to emergencies.”
