This is the heartwarming moment an old man helped a dog cross an overflowing river after heavy rain.

Footage shows the pensioner carrying the pooch before walking across the knee-deep muddy water in Cotabato City, the Philippines on April 8.

Onlooker Alinor Macarambon said: ‘I did not know that there was a stray dog. It was trapped on the other side of the stream so it could not go into the village for shelter. He was a kind man.’
