Teen jumps into frozen pond to save dog

NOBLEVILLE, Ind. Nekoda Witsken, 18, watched as her dog Breeze fell through the ice of a backyard pond in Nobleville.

She moved quickly, jumping in the frozen pond in an attempt to help the golden retriever. But the water was too cold and she retreated to shore.

That's when the fire department stepped in, pulling Breeze to safety.

The dog was in the icy water for 40 minutes. She had to be treated for hypothermia.

She's recovering nicely, as is Witsken.
