Brave teenagers rescue stray dog stranded in dirty canal
Published on October 10, 2017
This was the heartwarming moment brave teenagers wade through a sewage-infested canal to save a stranded dog.
Pornpipat Suwanakar, 19, spotted the hapless mutt balancing on a floating piece of debris after falling into the waterway in Bangkok, Thailand on October 8 afternoon.
He clambered down the bridge with friends Pongdej SiyaIam and Thanaphon Suphachi.
The pair coaxed over the stray dog but it was too afraid to leap to them so they stepped down into the filthy water which was swollen from recent heavy rain.
Thanaphon then carried the dog through waist-height water to safety.
Pornpipat, who filmed the clip, said: ''The dog was just floating in the water and we had to catch him like we were fishing.
''I'm not sure what would have happened to him and how he fell into the water. The canal is so dirty and smells a lot. It's lucky there was something for him to stand on.
''The dog was happy that he was rescued. And we were happy to have a shower after.''
