MILWAUKEE (WTHR) — Wisconsin firefighters made a daring rescue on Lake Michigan Friday morning after a dog fell through the ice.

Tuff, a 12-year-old English bulldog, was spotted struggling in deep water for 10 minutes outside the South Milwaukee Yacht Club.

Thankfully, officials say rescue crews had trained in that exact location two days before the incident.
