In Dec. 2018 in Van, Turkey, a puppy was found on a chunk of ice in the lake. It was almost 500 feet from shore.
A passerby noticed the puppy in the lake and called the police to rescue the poor puppy.
Burak Okten, a diver with the Turkish police, arrived at the scene and started rescuing the puppy.
Okten managed to get her to shore and the rescuers started trying to revive her.
“We had very little hope when she got out of the water. I didn’t expect her to survive” Okten told to the BBC.
“It was 0200 when we got in touch with you. Our veterinarians devoted themselves to her.”
“And a miracle happened really. She came back to life.”
The best part is Okten himself adopted the puppy. The rescue video was posted online and Internet users praised the brave diver who saved and adopted the puppy.
One wrote: ‘Poor dog. The officer is a hero’ while another said: ‘We really need more people like this officer..God bless you…n THANK YOU for what you had done Sir…thank you’
The third one commented: ‘That man should get a medal, what a great chap, hope something really good comes your way’
