You know, a FRIEND of mine did that when his dog got stuck in a lake last winter. Worked great until he grabbed the dog's collar and pulled it up on the ice. Then the ice gave way and he went into the drink. Which was only about 2' deep, as it turns out. But as he was laying on the ice instead of standing, he went fully in instead of you know just getting his legs wet.

I personally have no direct knowledge of any of this.
