Rescues don’t stop just because it’s cold outside.
An Illinois fire department rescued an 11-year-old who was stuck into a frozen pond just outside of Chicago.
Video of the rescue showed a firefighters swimming to the boy as they pulled him out of the pond with a floating device.
In another incident in New Jersey, a golden retriever was rescued after he fell through the ice on a river. The dog was barely able to keep its head above water while wading in the water.
Divers rushed into save the cold animal in a moment caught on tape.
Thankfully, rescuers were able to pull the dog out unharmed.
It’s not only frozen water causing problems this winter though. In Utah, several cars slid on a snowy, canyon roads during a winter storm.
