SOMERS, N.Y. – A state trooper rescued a dog that had fallen into a partially frozen pond in Somers on Saturday afternoon.
The owner of a yellow lab named Shelby contacted police after the dog fell into a pond behind John F. Kennedy Catholic High School on Route 138 around 12:15 p.m. Saturday.
Trooper Christopher Spallone was able to walk out on the ice and rescue Shelby, but fell into the water himself when the ice broke as he was returning to the shoreline.
Somers Police Officer Curtis Dustin and Fireman Michael Cyrulik were able to get Spallone out of the water.
Spallone was treated and released from Northern Westchester Hospital, and Dustin was treated at the scene.
Shelby is expected to make a complete recovery.
