EAST FALMOUTH - Two dogs are alive thanks to Falmouth firefighters and the man who called 911. Gerald Campbell was looking out the window of his home Saturday afternoon when he saw two dogs had fallen through the ice on Green Pond.

Mr. Campbell called 911 and Falmouth firefighters responded to the scene. Firefighters donned survival suits and pulled the dogs from the freezing cold water.

Both dogs are expected to survive. It is unknown if the dogs would have survived if Mr. Campbell had not called for help when he did. The identity of the dogs' owner is unknown. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
