Passerby Saves Man And Dog From River

A kind-hearted passerby helped rescue a dog and his owner from a river. Onlookers watched initially as the spaniel swam up the Brayford Pool in Lincoln, United Kingdom. His owner was trying to coax him to the side in order to haul him back out, but the dog began to struggle. Fearing his spaniel would drown, the owner dived in and swam towards the dog, helping him to the side of the steep banked area. But unable to get out by themselves, a quick thinking passerby on a skateboard - believed to be a local university professor - jumped over the railings to help haul them out to safety. Student Jessica Murphy, 21, saw the dog swimming in the water surrounded by high banks and posted a video on social media of the drama unfolding.
