This is what I found on ABC7CHICAGO.COM:
CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago police released bodycam video that shows the dramatic rescue of a man who fell into freezing Lake Michigan by five officers who created a “human chain.”
On Sunday, the officers grabbed onto each other’s belts to rescue the 33-year-old man who had gone into the water to save his dog near Foster Beach.
“We didn’t talk about it, we just kind of did it,” said CPD Sgt. Alex Silva during a Monday press conference.
A witness called 911 at about 1 p.m. saying that she thought someone was in the water. The man was able to rescued the dog — a 19-pound American Eskimo mix puppy named Pika — but it was more tricky for the man to get out as the shore wall was covered in ice.
“He was standing in water up to about chest high, but he was numb,” Silva said. “He couldn’t hold anything. He couldn’t climb out. There was no way to climb out. It was sheer ice. We actually, if you watch the video, we’re falling, just trying to get to the edge near the water. He could not have gotten out on his own.”
