Webster Firefighter Taken To Hospital After Weekend Rescue

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 at 11:35 am

A Webster firefighter had to be taken to the hospital over the weekend after a rescue on the ice.

WQOW reports that it happened on Saturday north of Webster when a dog wandered out onto the thin ice on Fremsted Lake. Firefighters were able to rescue the dog but the station quotes the Webster fire chief as saying it was pretty strenuous work in the water and one firefighter was taken to the hospital for overexertion.

Thankfully, that firefighter is ok.
