Here’s an astonishing video making its way around the Internet: a man in Russia saw a dog who had fallen through the ice and leaped into action. It’s clear that the dog could not survive very long in the frigid water and would surely succumb soon. So the man used a unique method to get to the struggling animal. He windmill-punches his way through the soft ice and brings the dog back to people waiting on a dock.
It’s a remarkable display of both bravery and toughness. One can only imagine how cold that was, and how much his hands and arms suffered from the effort. There’s no information about who this guy is, but he deserves a medal.
