LINCOLN, Neb. — A dog saved by its owner from the icy water of a Lincoln lake has helped two men rescue the woman.

Steve Dye and Ray Frana work for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As they checked the dam Wednesday at Holmes Lake they noticed the dog out on the ice, next to a woman splashing in a hole.

Frana crawled out onto the ice, carrying a rope. The dog went to Frana, who tucked one rope end in the dog's collar, and the dog went back to the woman. She grabbed the rope, and the men pulled her back to the shore.

The woman said she'd gone onto the ice to rescue her dog, which had fallen through. She fell through after she got the dog out.
