A woman was rescued from a lake in Central Park after jumping in to save her dog.

Eyewitnesses say the woman was walking five dogs, including her own on Sunday morning when her dog got loose and fell through the ice into the man-made lake.

The woman jumped into the frigid water to fetch the dog, but then needed help herself.

Bystanders called police, who used a life preserver to pull her to shore.

The woman and her dog are expected to be alright.
