An amazing rescue was caught on camera in Michigan as a Coast Guard crew battled chunks of ice and frigid temps to save a dog from drowning.

The pooch fell into the Frankfort Channel Monday and got trapped between chunks of ice two feet thick in some places.

A petty officer swam 150 yards to reach the dog, then swam back to shore where his partners helped pull the animal to safety.

Video in this story is from the U.S. Coast Guard.
