    Boston Fire Department Rescues Dog Stranded in Water for More Than 30 Minutes

    A dog was rescued by the Boston Fire Department after becoming trapped in the water Sunday morning.

    The rescue happened around 9:40 a.m. in the water at Pleasure Bay, opposite the skating rink in South Boston.

    The dog’s owner says that Kai likes to swim but went out a little too far and wasn’t able to swim back. Officials say they rescued Kai about 200 feet from shore.

    Kai was stranded in the water for 30-40 minutes before the fire department arrived and pulled the 12-year-old golden retriever from the water.
