A brave RSPCA inspector didn’t think twice about entering freezing cold water to rescue a dog that had become stuck in the ice.
In the clip, Inspector Jaqui Miller came to the rescue of pooch Hardy who had become trapped in ice in the River Wansbeck in Ashington, Northumberland.
Inspector Miller said: “We were really worried about poor Hardy as he had been stuck in the ice for about an hour in the freezing cold water.
“He had been out walking with his dog walker when he had run into the river not realising that the minus six-degree weather we’ve had recently had frozen the water. His dog walker told us he’s so used to paddling in the river and the sea that he just bounded off hoping for a little swim.”
Firefighters were called to the incident and helped attach Miller to a rope so they could pull her back if she became in danger. A GoPro she was wearing at the time helped capture the daring rescue mission.
