ST. PAUL -- An elderly St. Paul woman was rescued from Lake Elmo after she jumped into the chilly water to save her dog. Washington County sheriff's deputies say the 72-year-old woman and her dog were walking along the shore when the dog either jumped or fell in -- and when the victim went in after the dog she didn't realize how deep and cold the water was. She hung on to a fishing pier for about 10 minutes before a passing boater pulled her out. She did not need medical treatment.
