What was supposed to be a hunting trip turned ugly quickly for a 60-year-old man and his dog.

The two were near the Colorado River in Western Colorado when the dog fell through the frozen ice in an attempt to retrieve a duck. The dog's owner successfully pulled the canine out of the ice, but in doing so he fell into the frozen river.

According to NBC 11 news in Grand Junction, Colo., the man was trapped in the ice for half an hour before rescue crews reached him. The man's dog stayed by his side until he was pulled out of the ice.

The hunter was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for hypothermia.
