A dog named Tinkerbell found drowning in New York’s freezing waters is now safe and sound, thanks to the heroic actions of the New York City Police Department (NYPD).

While patrolling Jamaica Bay around 10 a.m. Wednesday, NYPD Harbor Unit officers spotted the distressed dog struggling to keep her head above the freezing water.

The officers sprang into action, pulled the pup from the frigid bay, and wrapped her in warm blankets. Then, they rushed her to a vet, where she received a clean bill of health before reuniting with her guardian.

Lady Freethinker applauds the officers’ quick and brave efforts to save this struggling pup from ice-cold waters and get her back to safety.
