GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — A hunter who broke through ice on the Colorado River has been rescued after spending more than 30 minutes in frigid water.

Lower Valley Fire District Chief Frank Cavaliere (cav-uh-LEER') says the man, believed to be age 60, was treated for hypothermia.

Grand Junction Fire Department spokesman Mike Page says the man had gone onto the ice after a dog that was retrieving a duck or goose around noon Tuesday. Cavaliere says other hunters saw the man fall and called 911. The dog was fine and running around in the 14-degree weather when firefighters arrived.
