FULTON, N.Y. (AP) — Firefighters had to save two people who were attempting to rescue a dog from an icy New York river.

Fulton fire officials say the dog fell through the Oswego River's ice Sunday afternoon, and a man and woman tried to help.

Syracuse.com reports the man fell into the water, so firefighters worked with state police and volunteers to throw a rope to him. The woman had hoisted the dog into a kayak, but was unable to return to shore on her own. She and the animal were pulled to shore by firefighters in ice rescue suits.
