Although the human being is part of the causes of many destructions of nature, flora and fauna, when he puts himself to it, he is able to carry out actions which contribute to “restoring the faith in the humanity”. For example, some time ago a man performed a feat that probably could have cost him his physical integrity to save a sheep that had fallen into a river.
The protagonist of a similar situation was Alfonso de Anda García, popularly known as Poncho de Anda, a Mexican television presenter who, in an emotional scene, helped rescue an expert who had fallen into a frozen lake and couldn’t move.
Woman stepped into freezing water to save dog
The video was posted on his Instagram account, where it quickly went viral. We can see the Mexican who, while having fun with his two children in the snow of Lac-Beauport in Quebec, Canada, came across a motionless furry man in the frozen water. Apparently, he had been there a long time and the cold might have numbed his muscles, so he was completely stuck.
Poncho first ventured to approach the animal, testing the resistance of the surrounding ice with a branch, because if it broke, as apparently happened to the dog, it would fall to the water and would complicate rescue.
Then a woman who accompanied them dared to approach a little closer, kneeling in the snow to get closer to him while De Anda held her feet. Then he plunged his hands into the cold water to grab him by the legs and pull him, finally managing to pull him out of his freezing prison.
“I thought I was only going to see this in videos, but it was necessary to save a dog that fell into a lake of ice,” the presenter wrote in the description of the video, which reached almost 5,000 likes and more than 300 comments, the majority praising the work of the rescuers.
Thank you for saving this dog. He was about to give up. Thank you thank you thank you,” one netizen commented. “Whoever the woman wears the ‘red cape’ is my Superman now. Well done Poncho,” added another. “My respects, show your big heart, blessings to your family,” said a third.
Many users have asked about the dog’s current condition. De Anda responded to one by saying “I’m fine”.
