Chicago police officer rescues dog from water

Screenshot  Facebook  ABC7

It was a case of being in the right place at the right time for a newly graduated United States police officer who rescued a dog struggling in the waters of Lake Michigan in Chicago. Occupants from the Terrain and the Malibu were taken to Northwestern Hospital for treatment. A person who jumped out of the Toyota and ran from the scene was detained, police said. The conditions of the passengers in the other cars are unknown at this time.

Police say the dog was attempting to get a drink from the lake and fell in. "He just kept running back and forth, was pretty excited".




The police think the dog probably ran away from one of the vehicles involved in the wreck. I heard the splash. "I was hoping he didn't get too far, because it would've been quite the battle if I had to jump in", said Farris, who graduated from the police academy six weeks ago. Another officer was able to get a leash on the dog. The dog can then be seen falling in the water and frantically struggling to return to the roadway. The dog was rescued from the water by officers responding to the crash.

"I've always wanted to a dog", said Farris, noting he lives in a high rise.
