RAYMOND, Maine — In a story worthy of a Lassie episode, one dog led rescuers to another who'd fallen through the ice at a southern Maine pond.
Cold-water rescue crews from three area fire departments assisted in the rescue.
The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Notched Pond in Raymond.
Crews from Gray dove into the icy waters and successfully pulled out Mishka, who was located about 150 feet offshore. Teams from Raymond and New Gloucester assisted at the scene.
Mishka's sister, Senga, led rescuers to where the dog had fallen through. A neighbor had heard strange barking sounds near the pond before notifying police.
Officials say Mishka is recovering normally and is considered in stable condition.
"People need to be mindful that the ice is not safe, anywhere," said Chief Elkanich of Gray. "If any person or pet falls through the ice or is in the icy waters, call for emergency personnel or the next victim could be you."
