A 11⁄2 year-old yellow lab named Johnson was rescued after being trapped in the ice on the Iowa River on Jan. 22 near Lower City Park.

Lt. Brian Rohr of the Iowa City Fire Department, an expert in water and ice rescue, entered the water and assisted Johnson to safety around 3 p.m.

Johnson was found clinging to the ice approximately 15 feet from the river bank.

A press release said the dog and his family are now doing well, though “Johnson is a little tired.”
