Despite rescue attempt, dog dies after plunge through ice

Police and firefighters managed to pull dog from a frozen pond in Middletown after it slipped through a hole Thursday morning but the animal died, Chief of Police R. Crag Weber said in a statement.

Emergency workers responded to a Melrose Terrace home around 11 a.m. and found paw prints leading to the hole. The dog, a 4-year-old beagle, had become submerged beneath the surface, Weber said.

Attempts to revive the dog after it was found failed, Weber also said.
