A seven-year-old Labradoodle named Belle from outside Rochester, New York, is alive today thanks to State Trooper Kevin Lund. On December 15, 2014, the dog was enjoying a walk when she stepped onto the ice surface of the Erie Canal in Bushnell’s Basin, Monroe County, and fell through. Fortunately, Lund spotted the pet in need and immediately stepped up to rescue the dog.

Lund was patrolling the area and saw Belle struggling to keep her head above the water. The canine was also unable to climb out of the water on her own and get back on the icy surface of the canal again. If the hero officer hadn’t helped her, Belle’s life would have ended that day.

The state trooper placed a ladder on the canals’ icy surface and carefully crawled on top of it until reaching the pet. The hero officer pulled the dog to safety and was then partially submerged in the freezing water, but thanks to the ladder, officer Lund was able to pull himself out of the cold water.

Belle was reunited with her owners then taken to her vet for a full checkup. Fortunately, Belle didn’t suffer any injuries and just needed to be dried off and kept warm.

  1. You’d never know what an asshole Lund is by this – how about lying under oath for starters. This guy is a parasite on our state coffers “working” with impunity to screw the citizens of our great state out of their rights. Guy belongs in jail for perjury at least. Scumbag
