The dog struggled to stay afloat and almost drowned, but thanks to the heroic men, who didn’t think twice about jumping into muddy water, the canine is alive and well.

Damián Ocampo jumped first and tried to untangle the pet, but when he couldn’t free the dog, Marcelo Garbino, the second hero, swam to the dog and saved the pet’s life.

A passerby used his cell phone to record the moment Garbino and the dog swam back to safety. Those standing on a bridge overlooking the river cheered when both, man and dog reached safety.
