A dog saved by its owner from the icy water of a Lincoln lake helped two men rescue the woman on Wednesday.

Steve Dye and Ray Frana, who work for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, were checking the dam at Holmes Lake when they noticed the dog out on the ice, next to a woman splashing in a hole.

Frana crawled out onto the ice, carrying a rope. The dog went to Frana, who tucked one rope end in the dog's collar and the dog went back to the woman. She grabbed the rope and the men pulled her to the shore.

The woman said she'd gone onto the ice to rescue her dog, which had fallen through. She fell through after she got the dog out.
