The video of a Chicago fire crew's rescue of a dog that fell into icy Lake Michigan earlier this month documents the final moments of a situation that could have gone much, much worse.

On the morning of Jan. 10, a woman was walking her dog near Lake Shore Drive and 41st Street when the pet ran onto the frozen lake and fell through the ice, CBS Chicago previously reported.

The video, shared Friday on Reddit, shows a diver pulling the dog out of the water to shore, where it was wrapped in blankets to warm up before being returned to its owner.

The situation was a close call as crews found the dog's owner on the ice trying to retrieve her pet when they arrived on the scene. Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford told the Tribune the successful rescue "got a little too close" to tragedy.

That's one lucky doggie.
