Cicero, NY (WIBX) – Just days from retirement a New York State Police officer saved the life of a Cicero man and his golden retriever.

Trooper Ron Morse and three fishermen, Eric Wilsey, Alan Waldron, and James Parkhurst, rescued 45-year old Albert Merola and his dog from Oneida Lake.

But it was but not before the ice gave way and sent Trooper Morse into the frigid water. Wilsey and Waldron were able to pull Trooper Morse and then Merola to safety.

Both men and the dog were evaluated and released without injury or hypothermia.

State Police would like to remind the public about the dangers of walking on the lake and how unstable ice can be.
