Woman rescued from Seneca River after trying to rescue her dog

A woman was rescued from the Seneca River after she attempted to rescue her dog, who had run out onto the ice, according to the Plainville Fire Department.

A woman was rescued from the Seneca River after she attempted to rescue her dog, who had run out onto the ice, according to the Plainville Fire Department.

The call came in just before 5 p.m. Friday, when a woman's kayak had flipped over in the Seneca River near Guyder Road and Plainville Road, authorities said.

A man then went into the water attempting to rescue the woman and her dog.

Authorities said the man ended up on an island with the dog, while the woman was clinging to her capsized kayak to remain afloat.

The woman was rescued by Air One in the water, and the Plainville Fire Department was able to rescue the man and the dog on the island.

The man and the woman were both transported to an area hospital, and the dog was not hurt, authorities said.

According to the Plainville Fire Department, the scene was cleared around 7:30 p.m. Friday night.

Fire officials said that this serves as a reminder for people to stay off the ice because you never know what could happen.
