A coyote survived a close call when it got stuck in ice in the Charles River in Cambridge, Mass.

Crews swam out to try and save the animal, and at one point, the ice gave way. However, the animal was able to climb back out of the water and eventually make its way to dry land.

The coyote was caught by an animal rescue group and was being treated at a wildlife clinic.
