A man has died in his attempt to save his dog.

London resident, Stephen Cavanagh, reportedly died after falling through a frozen lake while trying to rescue his dog.

Sixty-year-old Cavanagh jumped into the lake in Welling, south east London on Thursday, but passed away shortly after.

Distressing footage of the tragedy captured on a nearby resident’s security camera shows the grandfather running around the lake in Danson Park, Welling, south east London, as he tries to get his pet.

He can be seen climbing over part of the fence close to the park’s boathouse and then going around the water before he slips.
