A dog was rescued on Friday after spending days trapped in an icy reservoir in Utah.

The Utah County Sheriff's Office posted a video to their Facebook page showing rescuers on an air boat pulling the stranded dog from the ice over Deer Creek Reservoir.

Police said that Sadie had been trapped in the area since Monday, and multiple rescue attempts had failed because the scared pooch ran further from shore when rescuers approached her.

A rescue attempt was finally successful on Friday when Sadie broke through the ice and rescuers were able to grab her and pull her aboard the air boat.

Multiple agencies assisted with the rescue efforts, including the Utah Department of Natural Resources and the Utah and Wasatch county sheriff's offices.
