Dog rescued from frozen lake in Hungary

An ageing Labrador has been rescued from the middle of Lake Csunya in Pécel, Hungary.

The dog, named Marci, ventured onto the frozen lake but became trapped on a patch of very thin ice.

Divers from the country's National Emergency Response Service crawled out to him and dragged him to safety on an inflatable rescue sledge.

Marci was given a checkup and the vet said he had not suffered any long-term effects from his adventure.

The canine's owner later posted an update on Facebook, thanking the emergency workers and letting them know that Marci was doing well.
