Hero anglers rescue stranded dog struggling in the sea off Thai coast

This is the heartwarming moment a dog was rescued after it was found struggling to stay afloat off the coast of Thailand.

A group of fishermen were heading out for the day in their boat when they saw the drowning pooch stranged at sea Chonburi province on January 7.

The animal is believed to have fallen into the saw and kept swimming in the wrong direction while in a state of panic and being taken away by the sea currents.

The anglers immediately steered the vessel closer, with the clever dog seen paddling towards it.

Footage shows the kind passersby carrying the drowning mutt up to safety.

The angler who filmed the video, Khun Note, said: ‘It was thanks to everyone that the dog was saved. Its owner is free to contact me to get it back.’
