Dog in a canal – level 3
We've all found ourselves trying to keep our head above the water at some point in our lives, and this Peruvian doggy is no exception. The pooch found itself stranded in a canal in Trujillo on Wednesday, but luckily, police officers were on hand to help it out.
One officer even stripped down to his underwear and got into the water to help the drowning animal.
In the end, the police officer in the water grabbed the dog and handed it to the first in line of the human chain that had been formed along the canal bank. The dog was pulled to safety and only looked a little shaken up by the ordeal.
Difficult words: pooch (a dog), stranded (lost), grab (take), ordeal (something very bad that happens to you).
