VIDEO: Rookie Chicago Officer Rescues Dog from Lake Michigan

A dog fell into Lake Michigan Tuesday morning and struggled to get back up onto land. Luckily, a Chicago police officer got there just in time.

Chopper 7HD was over a crash involving four vehicles in the 600-block of North Lake Shore Drive in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood when the crew spotted an animal near the lakefront around 7:10 a.m. Police had responded to the chain-reaction crash around 6:30 a.m. Police believe the dog ran out of one of the vehicles and toward the lake.

When the helicopter crew noticed the animal, he was lapping at the water, leaning over the concrete. When the dog leaned a little too far, he fell into the lake. He started to paddle, but couldn't manage to get back onto the concrete.

Probationary Police Officer Juan Farris, one of the officers who had responded to the crash, ran over, got down on the ground and pulled the dog out of the water.

Farris and his field training officer brought the dog to the 18th District.

The dog has now been reunited with his owner.
