Rescuer Saves Dog Struggling To Stay Afloat In A Swift River

A bystander captured the moment a heroic man rescued a dog who was struggling to keep its head above water in the Biñan River.

The footage was shared with ViralHog and you can see the swift muddy river and a man on the bank. If you look closely, you can also see a poor pup who’d managed to get trapped in the water.

The person filming shared with ViralHog that they noticed the dog crying in the river around 7:00 AM and it wasn’t until 11:00 AM that a hero came to the rescue.

The man carefully reached out for the dog – putting his own life at risk – and managed to pull the pooch to the safety of the cement bank.

What a lucky dog to be gifted a second chance at life! We’re so glad the rescue turned out so successfully.
