A scary situation is currently underway as crews are in the water trying to rescue a dog that is stuck in Ellicott Creek. A tweet from Fire Buff NY, a police and fire scanner tracker account that someone local runs, shared the news on Tuesday morning.

The park, which has a main entrance address of 1 Ellicott Creek Drive, Tonawanda, NY 14150, has crews on the scene helping. This is an important reminder though, especially this time of the year for dog owners to be extra careful. The creeks and waters look like they might blend into the actual ground when they get snow on them, or the dogs make think that they are frozen and they can walk on them, but that is not always the case.

A dog got onto a patch of ice and because of the warm temperatures, the ice broke off and the dog was stranded. Luckily, the Chicago police department and others came to the rescue for the Australian Labradoodle. In fact, it took 12 people on the crew to come help! “Her owners are very happy now! And the Australian Labradoodle will be more careful!,” fire officials said in a tweet.
