A man from Essex stripped down to his underwear to rescue a dog!

The man (whose name is unknown) was spotted at 10:00 GMT on Sunday by many passers-by as he crawled his way across the frozen River Stour in a desperate attempt to rescue a stranded dog. The incident was described as “extremely dangerous” by a crew of Essex firefighters and many others went on to claim the incident as a “foolish act of bravery”.

An eye witness account informs us of how a person and his 2 friends saw the man “strip down to his underwear” and then slowly start “crawling across the ice” before falling into the freezing waters with the dog. Luckily, he managed to drag himself and the dog out of the cold waters and made it back to dry (and cold) land.

The irony of this story is, that just last week Essex assistant divisional officer Stuart McMillan issued a warning about travelling over icy lakes. Here’s what he said:

“Even though this ice appears to be strong it can be eggshell thin and anyone who falls through into the water below could get trapped under the ice
and would only be able to survive for minutes in the freezing water.

”He also noted that “The most common cause is people chasing their dogs out on to the ice” and that “it isn’t worth the risk. Dogs will normally make it safely off the ice and back to the shore – the same cannot be said for people.

“What a brave man, foolish indeed but still brave!
