RNLI rescue pooch struggling to swim to safety | SWNS TV


This adorable video shows an RNLI crewman wading through high tide to rescue a Highland terrier – as the dog struggled to swim to safety after being cut off by the tide. Little Bella the terrier can be seen desperately paddling along the sea wall to keep herself afloat, as the RNLI lifeboat crew approached her on Saturday afternoon. Crew member David Ridout hopped out of the boat and had to wade through the water behind her to pluck her out and bring her back to dry land. The RNLI crew, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, were called after a passer-by on packed Weston beach spotted Bella trapped by the flooding tide.
