I saw her go over the pier. I was in shock,” said Craigie. “When I got to the edge, I saw her dog-paddling. She was clearly panicking.”
Craigie raced toward the water, brushing aside a man who tried to stop her, and jumped in.

I was thinking, she’s not going to swim for long,” said Craigie. “With the temperature and her flailing, I didn’t think she would survive long.The icy chill of the water surprised her. “It was definitely a shock, it takes your breath away.”

She grabbed Moxie and held her on her shoulders as the dog tried to scramble up the wall. Holding on to a metal bar jutting from the water, Craigie heard the man on shore saying help was on the way.

About 20 minnutes later Craigie said it seemed like hours the two were rescued by divers from the Chicago Police Marine Unit. Craigie, 34, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and treated for hypothermia and released. Moxie seemed fine and was taken home by Craigie’s husband.

Craigie said she had no second thoughts about jumping in to save Moxie, particularly after she spotted the metal pole she could hold on to.The icy chill of the water surprised her. “It was definitely a shock, it takes your breath away.”

I could never stand there and watch her drown,” she said. “I don’t think I could live with myself knowing I didn’t tryThat’s why she disregarded the warnings from Aloke Mondkar, 30. “She was absolutely hysterical because that dog could not swim,Mondkar said. I tried to stop her but she would not listen.
