When a group of men went hunting, they saw a dog completely helpless in the frozen body of water and knew they had to help. The river's uneven layers of ice made it extremely difficult to know what the best possible way to get to her was. All they knew was that there had to be some way.
They knew right away that calling her wasn't enough, so they immediately rushed to look for sticks, logs, or anything that could be of use.
As they put their minds together, the father, brothers and friend all knew it came down to one choice. Someone, and only one of them would have to go. This dangerous rescue would take a lot of bravery, and there was one man among them who was willing to take the risk. Seeing the dog out there all alone was too much for him to bear. This wasn't just any dog, but a friend named Caesar.
It was one of the brothers who decided to step out on the ice, and the rest of them stayed back as to not cause the ice to break even more. The man stepped out after he removed the bulk of his clothing for the rescue, completely uncertain of the outcome.
It was one of those rare moments in life you have to go completely by heart and leave your thoughts to rest. Thinking about how freezing cold the water was or that he himself could fall through had to be blocked out completely, otherwise there may not have been any attempt at a rescue whatsoever. With both guts and sacrifice, he did what he had to do.
His brother was there to catch it all. As he recorded, one can only imagine his anxiousness.
There wasn't a lot of time to test the ice as he went forward, because every moment was precious for the dog's safety. The closer he got, the more he realized how dangerous the frozen territory was. Ice cracked all around him.
His brother, father and friend all gasped the moment he broke through the ice and fell through. Watch as the man was forced to think fast. This heart-racing rescue is shocking on every level. Get ready for emotions to bubble over as you see the ultimate ending in the video below.
