LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)--  A man who fell into the ice trying to rescue his dog from a frozen Missouri lake is expected to make a full recovery.

Firefighters were called to the lake to rescue the 60-year-old man and rushed him to the hospital where he was treated for hypothermia.

The incident was caught on cell phone video, and a neighbor described what happened and said the man was “tip-toeing” onto the ice and then “he just, kind-of, like, fell in.”

The dog was out of the water when rescuers arrived on the scene.
