Rescuers Save Dog Stranded On Icy Reservoir For Five Days

A dog stranded on icy Utah waters for the better part of a week was rescued and is now back at home.

Sadie was staying with her owner's relatives when she got a little anxious and ran outdoors.

She made it all the way onto an ice-covered reservoir only to find herself without a way back to shore.

For 5 days she waited, and help finally arrived.

On Friday, personnel with the Utah County Sheriff's Office got onboard an air boat and carefully approached the canine.

As the vessel passed Sadie, a volunteer reached out, grabbed her by the collar, and pulled her to safety.

She and her owner have since been reunited, and Sadie is reported to be doing very well.
