Police officers brave freezing water to rescue stranded dog


Two Spanish police officers waded into a frozen reservoir Wednesday morning to rescue a stranded dog, police said. 

Guardia Civil, a national police force in Spain, tweeted video footage of the rescue. 

The officers can be seen stripped to the waist as they march into the icy waters to bring the canine to safety. 

Police said the dog had gotten stuck in the reservoir in Canfranc, in Aragon, eastern Spain for hours on Tuesday.
