Firefighters in Canada saved the life of a family dog that ran onto thin ice and fell through.

The pup's owners were walking with him near a creek when they let him off the leash.

The dog ran out onto the ice which promptly broke under his weight and he became trapped.

In a video released of the rescue, the firefighter is seen sliding along the ice toward the dog on his stomach, with a rope tied to his waist and held tight by his crewmembers on the shore.
