Rescuers Save Dog From Floodwaters After It Was Found Clinging To A Building
One dog has had a lucky escape from floodwaters that are currently engulfing southern Mexico.
The pooch was found clinging to a building and it was incredibly lucky that people on a boat going through the neighbourhood were able to spot him.
In a video posted by to Twitter, the yellow Labrador is seen frightened and shivering in deep water as it desperately tries to stay afloat by holding onto a nearby railing.
Upon seeing the rescuers coming to his aid in a dinghy, the dog desperately moved his paws to the side of the boat as a man gently lifted him to safety.
"There are massive floods in southeast Mexico right now," the caption alongside the video read. "These guys in a boat found a good boy who was cold, frightened, and clinging to a wall. Heroes..."
In another video posted in the thread, the pup is seen being carried to safety.

The rescuers are members of the Mexican Navy, who shared an update on their Facebook page showing the dog safe and dry.
They wrote: "Naval personnel rescued a puppy trapped in the middle of the floods in Tabasco, which, thanks to the care received, is safe in the company of its rescuers."
Residents across Tabasco and Chiapas in Mexico's south have been battling extreme floodwaters as a result of the combination of two cold fronts and Tropical Storm Eta, leaving at least 35,000 homes damaged in Tabasco.
The conditions saw heavy rains thrash the towns of Tabasco, Chiapas and Veracruz last week, causing rivers to overflow and triggering landslides.
It is also estimated that dozens of people have died as a result of the devastating floods.
