On April 12, in the canton of Pasaje, Ecuador, a construction crew working on an irrigation channel received word that a dog had fallen into the channel upstream. The sides of the canal are straight and high and the water moves fast, so the dog was in serious danger of drowning.
The crew had their priorities straight and went into action. One very brave man climbed into the bucket of an excavator, which was lowered above the rushing waters. This was dangerous because, as you can see, he could have easily fallen in himself.
The crew catches sight of the dog and the hero snatched the dog out of the water, then delivers him to the safety of the ground.
