Helicopter Team Rescues Dog

310115-dog-rescue-california-composite-1-942x530A dog is in good health after being pulled from a swollen river in a dramatic airborne rescue.  The small brown pup, whose name is unknown, was spotted floating down Los Angeles River following thunderstorms on Friday afternoon.  Witnesses said the dog, thought to be a Labrador cross, was swept about a mile downriver near the Burbank border in California.

The rescue operation – which was caught on camera – saw a Los Angeles firefighter lowered on a cable from a helicopter before swimming towards the pup.  Footage then cuts to the shivering animal.  The seven-year-old dog, who was not microchipped, was said to be shaken but will recover.
