    A woman risked her life by jumping into a frozen lake to rescue a stranger’s dog which had fallen through the ice.

    A video of a dog walker and environmental activist Ben West shows the woman, who has not been identified, as she jumped into the lake and began crushing the ice with her bare hands to reach the animal in East Vancouver, Canada. Both the dog and rescuer were uninjured, Mr. West said. The animal was quickly wrapped in a towel and began playing with the other dogs, while the woman was taken to a neighbor's house until medics arrived to check her.
