A dog saved by its owner from the icy water of a Lincoln lake has in turn helped two men rescue the woman.
Dye and Ray Frana, employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, were out
checking the dam Wednesday at Holmes Lake when they noticed a dog out on the
ice, next to a woman splashing in the water.
Frana crawled out onto
the ice, carrying a rope. The dog was able to get to Frana, who tucked one rope end
in the dog's collar, and the dog went back to the woman. She grabbed
the rope, and the men pulled her back to the shore.
The woman said she had gone onto the ice to rescue her dog who had fallen through. She then fell through after rescuing the dog.
