Video: Dog rescued from icy river Published: December 23, 2013

A team of firefighters from Wellesley facilitated a dog rescue on the Charles River after "Crosby" fell through the ice and became trapped.

Police and rescue crews didn’t hesitate before jumping into the freezing cold waters of the Charles River over the weekend in order to extract a dog that had fallen through the ice, and couldn’t crawl back to land.

On Sunday, officers from the Wellesley Police Department received a “frantic” 911 call from a person who claimed their Golden Retriever, Crosby, made his way onto a remote part of the Charles River, where the ice was thin, and fell through.
