Omaha police officers rescued two people and a dog from Carter Lake after their boat capsized.

An officer patrolling the area saw the boat capsize around 12:30 p.m. Four officers came to the scene and all five swam an estimated 50-60 yards to save 55-year-old Kay Dunn, her 32-year-old son Nathaniel Nelson and her dog Buster.

Dunn, Nelson and OPD Officer Mark Kiley were taken to the hospital to be treated for exposure and early stage hypothermia. Buster was treated for exposure at the Nebraska Humane Society. All are expected to recover.

Four other Omaha police officers responded and helped get the two people and their dog out of the water.

Dunn and Nelson were not wearing personal floatation devices.
