REVERE, Mass. (AP) - Firefighters in Revere rescued a man and his two dogs from an icy marsh.

Authorities say the dogs ran into the marsh Thursday morning and became stranded when a piece of ice they were on floated about 500 feet from the shore. The man tried to rescue the dogs, but got stuck in waist-high water and started having chest pains.

Firefighters pulled the man to safety and brought him to Massachusetts General Hospital. His name and condition haven’t been released.

Rescuers then used an ice sled to retrieve the dogs from the floating ice. One of the dogs was uncooperative at first and bit the hand of a firefighter, who wasn’t seriously hurt.

The dogs are OK.
