Holly Morphew, the Instagram user who shared the video, explained that the dog fell into the lake while chasing the geese. Disregarding his personal safety, the man, identified as Jason Skidgel, stripped down and dove in to save the dog.
According to the post’s caption, a group of friends were out for a walk at Sloan’s Lake when they witnessed a heart attack incident. They observed a dog running across the lake, chasing a flock of geese.
Concerned, they watched as the dog made it to the edge of the ice-covered lake, only to plunge into the icy water. Onlookers were anxiously waiting for the dog to find a way to break the ice and get to safety, but it soon became apparent that the struggle was taking its toll on the exhausted animal.

Realizing that time was of the essence, the group immediately called the emergency services. As they waited for help to arrive, they grew increasingly concerned that rescue efforts would not arrive in time to save the struggling dog.
However, one remarkable individual emerged from the crowd, displaying extraordinary bravery and selflessness. Without hesitation, this unsung hero shed his own clothes and fearlessly dove into the icy lake to rescue the dog in distress.
Fortunately, the brave individual caught up with the dog and ensured its safety. This is how people reacted on the Internet.
