doggie at sea

Chicago firefighters with an assist from a citizen kayaker rescue a dog that had been running along the ice far into Lake Michigan near Rogers Park on Friday, Feb. 22, 2013. Kayaker Dave Kehnast said he was at home when his neighbor alerted him to the dog rescue in progress.

“I grabbed the kayak and pushed off shore and went and got him,” Kehnast said afterward. “I don’t think he realized he was in danger. It was a game to him.” The dog, who had been missing for a week, reached land safely and was eventually reunited with his owner across town.
