A Canadian TV news crew captured dramatic video of a man plunging into a freezing pond to rescue his dog after it fell through thin ice.

Duncan McIver was at a park in St. Albert, Alberta on Saturday when his pup, Cosmo, broke through the ice.

McIver didn't hesitate to jump in the frigid water to save Cosmo.

In an amazing coincidence, a CTV Edmonton reporter was at the park for a story on ice safety as the rescue unfolded.

Video shows McIvor break through the ice and make his way toward Cosmo, as the freezing pooch struggles to keep his head above water.

Luckily, McIvor was able to reach Cosmo and return him to safety on a strip of concrete near the shore.

“It’s a split second thing,” McIver told CTV Edmonton. “You’re not just going to let him die, right?”

"As soon as the ice broke, I just went right in,” he added. “I think most people would do the same for their dogs.”

Watch the dramatic rescue above.
