Some quick-thinking Oklahoma firefighters jumped into action when they saw a dog stuck in the middle of a frozen creek.
Captain Justin Flake of the Tulsa Fire Department said a firefighter saw the dog and called for help, according to News On 6. The firefighters then grabbed a raft and started their rescue.
This is a new one.

As some noted, the firefighters “scooted” to the rescue.
The brave men & women with @TulsaFire deserve some kudos today.
They scooted out this morning onto a frozen pond in east #Tulsa to pull a stranded dog to safety.

The video was a heartwarming reminder that there is still some good in humanity.
We need to see things like this to keep our hope in humanity alive.

Some joked that the dog was quite nonchalant while greeting her saviors.
The fire department responded to all of the kind words on Twitter.
