NIAGARA FALLS, NY- A man pulled from the icy waters of Hyde Park Lake in Niagara Falls Wednesday afternoon has died, according to Niagara Falls Police. Officials say he was approximately 70 years old.
Officials say 911 operators received a call just after 3pm that someone had fallen into Hyde Park Lake.
Firefighters pulled the man from the water and he was taken to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for treatment.
Officials say the man was walking his dogs when he fell through. They say the dogs are safe.
"It looks like at least one of the dogs had somehow found himself on the ice, and fell through the ice and this man had traveled on the ice to rescue his dog and ended up falling in and ultimately under the ice itself," said Captain Dave LaGault, with the Niagara Falls Police Department.
