In US Firefighters Rescue Dog Stuck In Submerged Vehicle For 20 Minutes

The authorities said the dog was rescued with no major injuries.

On Saturday, rescue workers in the United States saved a dog from a submerged vehicle. In a Facebook post, the Crawford Township Volunteer Fire Department in Currituck County in North Carolina said they had replied to a call regarding an overturned vehicle in a canal.

When the rescue workers came on the scene, they saw that a convertible sports car’s driver was out; however, the dog was still missing. Images released by the fire department show the damaged vehicle after a tow truck was called in to pull it out of the water.

In the caption, the firefighters said they chose to overturn the vehicle to look inside when they heard whimpers from the car. “We heard a whimpering sound in the car—awesome teamwork to our volunteers and assistance from Lantz Towing. We instantly overturned the car to gain access,” the post caption read.

For nearly 20 minutes, the car had been submerged in water. Then, the rescue workers managed to save the dog from “under the dash floorboard, where there was an air pocket.”

The dog was rescued with no apparent injuries, the authorities said.
