A yellow lab is lucky to be alive after a fall into the icy waters of Lake Michigan.

Coast Guard crews at Coast Guard Station Frankfort, Michigan were going about their morning Tuesday when they noticed the lab swimming amongst the ice in Betsy Lake right outside their window.

Luckily for the dog, the first responders jumped right into action, sending a swimmer out to retrieve the retriever who was almost 200 feet from shore.

The swimmer was able wade through the ice, eventually reaching the lab and, with some help from shore, they were brought back to the dry land where the lab went straight for the blanket.
