WATCH: Yonkers Man Jumps Into Frozen Lake To Save Dogs


Timofey Yuriev was walking his dog Kira last weekend at the O'Hara Nature Center when he noticed the older dogs crossing the lake on the ice.

He saw two dogs fall into the lake took off his clothes and jumped in!

Yuriev grew up in Kazakhstan and said his grandfather taught him to swim in ice in Siberia when he was 7 years old.

"When I did the breathing technique everything felt nice," he said. "I felt a bit light-headed and I went for the second dog."

Yuriev and all three dogs made it back safely to the shore and all are safe.
