On the morning of May 31, 2014, the town of San Pedro Necta in Guatemala suffered devastating mudslides after it was hit by torrential rains for a few days. So far 86 homes have been damaged and a total of 5 people have been declared dead. The Military rescuers are working tirelessly to excavate possible survivors and what they did not expect to find was a dog still alive after it had been buried by the mudslide 18 hours earlier!
While the rescuers were working to try and find possible missing or trapped individuals, someone heard a dog crying. The group followed the sound to its origin and started digging, soon enough, they were able to see the nose of a dog trapped in the mud. After the rescuers were able to make room around the head of the animal, we can hear one of the men expressing concern, fearing the dog would bite him. Another emergency respondent said: He won’t bite you, you are helping him! The group continued the delicate work of freeing the animal until the earth around his body was lose enough that he was able to extricate himself from his predicament. Thank you to these men for valuing the life of this dog and taking the time to save him!
