    Man dies rescuing a friend's dog

    Saving a friend's dog cost an Alberta man his life in rural New York.

    Earl Gallant, 55, from Three Hills, Alta., 115 km northeast of Calgary, was staying in a campground about 10 km outside of the village of Bath, N.Y., last Wednesday evening. He'd been working in the area, Jennifer Cole with New York state police said.

    His friend's 14-year-old Labrador retriever, Max, had gone into a pond and couldn't get out.

    Gallant jumped in after the dog.

    "(Gallant) just became exhausted and before anyone could get to him, he went under," said state police investigator Don Rodbourn.

    "The dog did get out, the dog is fine."

    Reports have varied, but it's believed Gallant was about six metres from the shore in water that was approximately 3 1/2 metres deep, said Cole.

    "He just said (to his friend) he was running out of steam and he wasn't going to make it," she said.
