Lake Charles, Louisiana

Thanks to the quick thinking on two maintenance employees at a nursing home in Crown Point Indiana, a mixed Labrador Retriever named Chiquita was rescued by a firefighter this morning. Keith Boersma answered the emergency call to retrieve a female dog who fell into an icy pond that could not get out on her own power. Boersma then put on his winter uniform to enter the pond and rescue the female dog before she would have expired due to the cold and wet conditions in the pond. After the rescue mission was finished, Chiquita was taken to a local animal hospital where she reunited with her owner who was looking for his lost dog. The grateful owner of Chiquita rewarded the firefighters at the fire station by buying them a pizza as a way of giving thanks to the firefighters for rescuing his dog.
