A video posted on the Facebook page of the Amesbury Police Department shows firefighters TJ Poussard and Mike Sweeney jumping into the water to save the life of a pit bull named Navia.

She had been reported missing several hours earlier when an officer spotted Navia and tried to catch her, but she bolted and ran onto Clarks Pond.

Once she was rescued from the ice-cold water, Navia was warmed up and returned to her owners.
