When beachgoers spotted an emergency in the waters of Miami, they immediately called the authorities for help.
A crew of firefighters showed up to the scene and quickly spotted the poor dog paddling for his life near a wooden dock. Then, one of the firemen stepped up and jumped right into the water.
In the video below, posted on July 27, 2017, a firefighter named Emilio Sanchez makes his way over to the struggling, black dog and tries to grab ahold of him.
The terrified canine splashes and bumps Emilio, but soon enough, the firefighter is able to wrap his arm around the animal’s torso.
Emilio takes extra precautions when swimming over to the rest of the firefighter crew. He knows the dog is scared, so he takes it easy and moves steadily.
He approaches a bright orange ramp and pushes the dog toward it. The canine wiggles and finally finds his bearings as he is placed on the ramp. With help from the team, the dog is able to move up the ramp and onto dry land once again.
The animal rescue members comfort the sweet dog as they celebrate another successful mission.
