Hero of the Day: Cop Jumps in River to Save Drowning Dog in Colombia

A heroic rescue was captured on video this week as a Colombian police officer leapt into a raging river to save a small dog from drowning after a deadly mudslide ravaged the region.

The cops were searching for survivors when they noticed the animal floating down the Liboriana River, and so they started chasing after it down the bank.

The video shows one of the cops jumping in and struggling against the current before scooping it up and bringing it to safety.

He then performs CPR on the dog (including mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) to help bring it back to life.

“Principe” has since recovered from the incident and is now “in good hands,” according to the police.
