A Peruvian reporter recently performed the kindest act when he stopped his live coverage of a flood to rescue a dog who nearly drowned frantically looking for a dry spot. According to the Asian Age, Aaron Rodriguez had been in front of the camera reporting on flood conditions for the publication Latina Noticias, when he spotted the dog trying to get out of the water.
Flooding in Peru has affected over 640,000 people and left many more homeless. While reporting live, Rodriguez saw the dog swimming in the water, but sadly unable to find his way to safety. That is when the reporter moved forward and scooped the pooch up with his hands; gently placing him in a safe, dry place.
Rodriquez, however wasn’t the only animal lover with a big heart in this terrible natural disaster area. Another Latina Noticias reporter, Ricardo Reyna joined in a similar rescue when he spotted a different dog trying to get out of the water in the Cajamarquilla region. Reyna also helped the dog out of the flood waters to a safe dry area. The videos have been going viral – and both reporters have been lauded for their heroic and truly wonderful deeds.
Thousands of people are still struggling to recover after the torrential rain that resulted in major destruction.
