Royal National Lifeboat Institution volunteers save a dog that fell from a cliff.
We commonly hear reports concerning pooches saving people, but one distressed dog in Ireland was recently saved by volunteers of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
The female husky, named Koda was wandering near a coastline when she fell over a cliff.
She landed in the rough waters and was swept over 300 feet out to sea from the strong current. Koda’s owner was left panicked and helpless. Thankfully, the two volunteers, Nick Searls and Ian Fitzgerald arrived on scene in the nick of time to rescue Koda.
Nick swam out to sea and dragged Koda back to land, while Ian pulled a safety line.
Last year, a Florida grandfather, 66-year-old Steve Gustafson had been trimming a tree near his home, while his dog, named Bounce played by the water. Unfortunately a gator was also lurking in the pond and grabbed Bounce by the collar.
Steve hurried and jumped straight into the pond, landing on the alligator's back. He pushed the 130-pound reptile's head downwards, while shoving it hard and the pooch was soon freed from the alligator's jaws.
