Man rescued after jumping into Hudson River to save his dog

First responders rescued a man and his dog from the Hudson River on Saturday.

The 28-year-old man jumped into the water at 43rd Street and 12th Avenue around 5 p.m. in an attempt to save his pooch, which had accidentally fallen in, according to the NYPD.

The department’s Harbor and Emergency Service Unit stepped in after the pet owner began to struggle in the water, cops said.

Both man and dog were towed safely back to shore.

“Great work by #NYPD Harbor & ESU rescuing a male that jumped into the Hudson River to retrieve his dog that accidentally fell into the water,” police tweeted, along with a photo of the man clutching his furry friend.

“The male was unable to return to land, responding personnel quickly removed both the man & his dog to safety.”

The man was taken to Mt. Sinai West where he is expected to recover, according to cops.
