Heroes rescue dog from Grand River

SIX NATIONS — First Responders executed a dramatic rescue on February 9 of a dog who fell through the ice on the Grand River.

Dramatic video captured by Six Nations Fire and Emergency Services showed a two-man rescue team: Firefighter Cameron Green and Acting Fire Chief Dereck Manitowabi hoisting the animal out of the frigid waters and back to safety.

Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council issued a statement, commending the community’s first responders and said the dog, known as Ted, was brought safely home to its owner.

SNGR also issued a warning to community members that extreme caution should be used before approaching the river and any ice-covered body of water in the community as the constant flow of water under the surface creates unstable ice conditions.
