DENVER – Two people and a dog had to be rescued at a lake in Washington Park Saturday afternoon.
Denver Fire says the two were attempting to rescue a dog that had fallen through ice and into water on the park’s southwest side—near East Louisiana Avenue and South Downing Street.
Both people were taken to the hospital for evaluation but are expected to be OK.
The incident comes just hours after the department was out at the park training for ice rescues.
Just a reminder, if your dog falls into the water, call 911 and wait for professional help.
