Man Crawls Over Icy Lake To Save A Stranger’s Dog

What this man did to save a dog is simply amazing. When Ove Karlsen’s wife spotted a dog struggling to stay afloat after falling through the ice on a frozen lake in Norway, she called him for help.

The dog’s owner (a woman) had tried to go into the freezing water but could not rescue her dog because she did not have the proper gear to safely do it. But Ove did. Donning a wet suit, he used a knife to pull himself over the slippery surface while his friend held a safety rope and filmed the dramatic event.

Ove can be heard calling for his dog to come over to him as he inches slowly over to her in the freezing waters.

Thankfully, the pair made it safely back to shore. The dog was taken to the vet and given the all-clear. What a wonderful man to help a stranger and her dog like he did!
