Man rescued after falling into Smithtown lake
Police say a Brooklyn man is going to be OK after falling into a frozen Smithtown lake.
Police say the man was walking his dogs at Blydenburgh Park on Vets Highway Saturday when one got loose and ran onto the icy lake.
When the man tried to get the dog, he fell into chest-deep water for about 25 minutes.
Suffolk police and park rangers pulled the man to safety.
Police say the man needed to be treated for hypothermia.
The dog was not hurt.
