Dog Rescued From Ice James River In South Dakota

January 4, 2012, 10:09 AM

YANKTON, SD - Authorities say a dog that fell through thin ice on the James River at Yankton recovered quickly.

The Yankton Search and Rescue team arrived at the scene within 15 minutes of getting the call late Monday morning. It took members about 25 minutes to get the dog named Murphy back on dry ground.

Rescue team director Jake Lammers says that Murphy was able to stand on his own when he got to shore. Lammers says officials were going to wrap the dog in a blanket but Murphy went quickly to the house where he lived and "right through the doggy door."

Lammers says it was fortunate that someone had quickly spotted the endangered dog, because Murphy couldn't have survived in the river for long.
