This is the touching moment a helpless stray puppy was rescued from a gutter hole in central Thailand.
The pooch was soaked in filth when the hero, Mongkon Uthaimat, discovered it in Chon Buri province on October 22.
When Mongkon set eyes on the wet pooch, she knew it had to rescue it.
She threw a rope down and tied the puppy’s body to it. As she was dragging it up to the ground, the puppy was crying out of fear.
She said: ‘I want to thank god the puppy was still alive when I discovered it.’
The puppy was brought up to the ground safely and was adopted by the woman.
