Watch: Firefighter crawls on ice to rescue dog that fell through

It happened at a park in Eagan Monday afternoon.

A dog that fell through thin ice in Eagan Monday afternoon was rescued by a firefighter who crawled out on the ice to get it. 

In the video below, you can see the fireman crawling on the ice before eventually breaking through himself, at which point the dog was able to free and swim back to shore. 

The water doesn't appear to be too deep and the fireman got out just fine as well.
