The video, which was filmed in Bing He Park in Bole, was shared on the police force's social media.

According to reports, the police were called by the dog's owner, who said their beloved golden retriever had accidentally fallen into the icy water.

The temperature was reported to be around -16C that day, meaning the dog would almost certainly have perished had he not been hauled out the water.

Speaking to Pear Video, Shi Shuanlin, one of the officers, said: "The dog was shivering and it couldn't move at all."

The body camera footage shows the police running through the park to get to the lake and the animal's aid.

Shuanlin said they were forced to slowly and gently approach the dog, so as not to break the ice.

He then kneeled down, while one of his fellow officers held onto his arm for support and reached for the dog with the other arm.

He was then able to pull the dog out of the water by grabbing its paw.

The cute dog seemed to be no worse off for his little mishap and could be seen wagging his tail and shaking the water out of his fur before he was reunited with his concerned owner.

After the clip was shared on Douyin, the Chinese equivalent of TikTok, the officers have been widely praised for their heroic actions and quick-thinking.
