A dog was drinking out of Lake Michigan and leaned too far over, tumbling into the water.

Police were able to locate the dog in the lake because of a four vehicle pileup that was being monitored by Chopper 7HD, according to ABC 7.

Two Chicago police officers are credited rescuing a dog that fled from auto crash and fell into Lake Michigan. He started to paddle, but couldn't manage to get his paws back onto the concrete.

Officer Juan Farris, one of the officers responding to the nearby crash, ran over, got down on the ground, and pulled the dog from the water. Once I heard, I turned over, I saw him swimming, just went over there and grabbed him. Other officers came to help and Farris and another called animal control.

In the video, an officer is seen rushing to the dog's aid after it plunged into the water. Police are trying to find out if he has an owner.

The frightened dog scurried along the edge of the lake, but eventually they coaxed it close enough to put a leash on it. But Farris and Guzman said they've since learned the dog's appearance was not connected to the crash.
