Firefighters rescue goose trapped in ice in Londonderry, NH

LONDONDERRY, N.H. (WHDH) - Londonderry, New Hampshire firefighters risked their own safety to save a goose that was stranded on a frozen pond on Saturday.

“We did find the goose was frozen in the ice,” Battalion Chief James Roger said. “It appeared to be having some sort of issue and couldn’t free itself.”

Drivers passing by the pond spotted the bird and alerted Londonderry Fire Department to the situation.

In a matter of a few short minutes, crews were on scene to help.

First responders put on their ice rescue suits and made their way toward the Canada goose. Crews wrapped the goose up and brought it inside a rescue truck to thaw from the cold.
