Earlier this morning, a woman had to be rescued after apparently getting stuck on an island in Prospect Park's lake. And why did she go over the island? To chase her dog, which had been swimming in the lake.

A witness told DNAinfo, "It was crazy. The pitbull went in the lake after the ducks and it wouldn’t come back... The ducks were smarter than the dog. They were swimming in a circle, and the dog couldn’t get them. She was calling her dog and yelling at him for about 30 minutes. All of a sudden, she jumped in and swam after it."

Witness Christopher Wu tells us by the time he got there, she was on the island. Then the FDNY helped her and her dog off the island.
