No-one knows how the dog got there, but thankfully they saw him in time or otherwise he would have met his end in the cold waters. Kirillov Igorevich saw the dog standing on a floating block of ice in the water; he was shocked at first but then he called over his friends and what followed was incredible. Igorevich’s crew member Firsov was already wearing waterproof gear, and he volunteered to rescue the dog. Without thinking, Firsov was lowered down by his fellow team members by rope to save this poor dog. The dog’s reaction at the end is heartwarming; these guys deserve a gold medal for what they did.
