In Greece, there was a large reservoir of water that supplied the needs of a nearby town. The edge of the tank had a fence around it and people normally avoided coming dangerously close to the edge of the water tank and needing rescue.
Only authorized workers can go beyond the fence. The workers come to monitor the water level and check the condition of the tank. But the fence was very wide, and anyone can actually pass through it without difficulty.
A pair of workers went to the reservoir for a routine inspection. The rain was quite heavy the day before. As expected, the tank was almost full.
Workers noticed a dog swimming in the tank and they went on a rescue mission
Then one of the workers noticed something moved near the edge of the tank at the waterline. It was a big dog trying to stay afloat. The tank was very deep, and its walls were very slippery. They knew the dog would drown if it wasn’t taken out of the tank soon.
One of the workers found a rope from their vehicle and rushed back to the edge of the tank near the dog. He made a large noose with the rope and tried to reach the dog with it. After several tries, he finally got the noose around the neck of the dog.
But the dog was too big and heavy. They didn’t know what else they could do. The workers decided to call a local animal rescue group. Fortunately, the rescue group responded favorably and sent a team immediately to the reservoir area.
The team arrived within the hour. The dog and the workers looked exhausted. The workers kept holding the rope and keeping the dog’s head above the water.
The rescuers went to work immediately. They brought a pole with a noose at one end and used it to grab the dog better and get more leverage to lift the large dog.
They finally got the dog out
The team and the workers worked together to lift the dog out of the tank. After a few tense minutes, the dog was safely on the ground.
As soon as the rescuers removed the noose around its neck, the dog quickly ran away.
The workers thanked the rescuers for helping them. But the rescuers told them that they were the heroes because they did not ignore the drowning dog and cared enough to help it out.
