Knightdale, North Carolina – A dog is lucky to be alive after falling into a river in North Carolina and getting trapped in debris. The frightening incident happened on Tuesday night when the pooch tumbled into the cold water of the Neuse River.

The Knightdale Fire Department posted images of the rescue effort on Facebook, explaining what had transpired:

Tonight around 6:15 our crews along with Raleigh Fire Engine 26 were dispatched to a dog that had fallen in the river and was trapped in some debris. Upon our arrival crews quickly assessed the situation and the decision was made to deploy our boat for a rescue. The dog was quickly located and pulled from the rising and cold Nesue River.

Judging by the photos, the tired dog was relieved to be out of the cold water and safely inside the rescuers’ boat. According to the Facebook post, the pup was reunited with his owners after he was back to shore – he is expected to be okay.

Thank goodness he was not in the water long and that he has a home to go to. Thanks to the rescuers who so quickly got him out of the cold water. Brr! it is too early for swimming.
