FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Body cam footage shows a Fort Wayne Police officer rescuing two dogs from an icy pond Sunday morning.

Shortly after 7:30 a.m., a nearby resident reported that a dog may have fallen through the ice at Reservoir Park, saying they heard a dog barking and saw something black in the water at the park, according to a release from FWPD.

Officer Trent Hullinger responded and found two black labs in the northeast part of the reservoir.

The release said both dogs appeared to be unable to get themselves out, as their heads were above the water with their front paws holding onto the concrete edge of the pond.

The temperature was about 34 degrees and the rain was turning into snow, the release said.

According to the release, the friendly labs were turned over to Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control (FWACC) with hopes of reuniting the dogs with their owner or finding them a new home.

"I am humbled by the outpouring of positive support for the incident. However, as most officers prefer to stay out of the spot light, I also try to stay out of the light, I just try to be a good person, be the light for the community, and take care of those who need my help (animals included)."

Hullinger said he served as an animal control officer for FWACC from 2008-2014.

Hullinger was also recognized back in 2016 for helping out a driver at a gas station by putting air in their car’s tires and making sure it was safe to drive in the winter conditions.

I don't see the video, sorry.

The video is to the right of the headline at the source. That was bugging me, I thought it was just an ad. I don't look at local news much unless I'm bored.

“The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone.
TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy…
but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”
