Three Michigan firefighters used ropes and ice rescue gear to try to reach a labrador retriever trapped out of the ice.

Fire crews responded after taking several calls about a dog that had fallen into the freezing water about 100 yards from shore.

The rescuers had to be tethered to fellow firefighters on the shoreline to reach the animal. They were eventually able to safely pull the 90-pound animal out of the water.

The dog was treated at a shelter until its owner was found.
