On April 12, a team of construction workers received an alarming warning: there was a dog drowning in an irrigation canal at the Pasaje Canton project in Ecuador. The collaborators didn’t think much and went to the rescue.
The scenes can be strong and cause a little distress for those who value the health and safety of any pet. One of the team members volunteered to climb on the shovel of a backhoe machine and save the animal.
The irrigation current was very strong and fast, the chance of saving the dog was very small and had to be accurate, luckily everything went well and the collaborator managed to grab the animal.
After the rescue, the dog was a little shaken but remained next to his rescuers, apparently the animal hurt its paw, there was a lot of garbage in the irrigation channel, something may have injured it, after getting off the backhoe it can be seen a little of blood on one hind leg.
The video was published on Youtube, by the Viralhog channel and was watched more than 13 thousand times, getting 138 likes and more than 40 comments, of course most of them were praise and thanks to those involved for saving the animal’s life.
