Littleton Police Officer Rescues Dog From Frozen Lake
LITTLETON — Chief Matthew Pinard reports that a Littleton Police officer rescued a dog that had fallen through the ice earlier this morning.
At 10:44 a.m., Littleton Police and Fire were dispatched to Long Lake Beach for a report of a dog that had fallen through the ice. Officer Brian Casey arrived on scene within two minutes of the call and located the dog, Tuukka, in the water just off the dock.
Using the equipment at his disposal, Officer Casey fashioned a lasso and was able to safely retrieve Tuukka from the water.
“It was extremely fortunate that Officer Casey was able to get to the scene as quickly as he did and help get Tuukka to safety,” Chief Pinard said. “This is a good chance to remind everyone, whether they have two legs or four, that it’s still too early in the season to be going out on the ice.”
