Constable Lefaivre, with a line attached, crawled onto the ice. After Teddy was lifted to safety, the ice broke and Constable Lefaivre was completely submerged. Constable McNames hauled him to the surface and he was able to get back onto the ice and then the shore line.

Neither Teddy nor the officer required medical attention.
