ROSLYN, N.Y. (AP) — This time around, man was the best friend.

Emergency services personnel in Nassau County rescued a golden retriever that had fallen through the ice into the waters of Roslyn Park pond.

The dog went into through the ice around 5:15 p.m. Sunday. Authorities used an inflatable boat and donned cold-water immersion suits to get to the animal.

The retriever was taken for veterinary treatment and then returned to its owner.
