A Good Samaritan came to the rescue of a dog who got her tongue stuck to a frozen manhole after licking it.
The dog (who may have been a stray) was desperately trying to pull her tongue free when the man approached her in Vladivostok, Russia, where winter temperatures have been around -15C (5F).
The quick-thinking Good Samaritan poured warm water on the dog’s tongue to melt the ice that had trapped her to the metal covering. After a minute, she’s liberated from the icy manhole and is seen walking around sniffing the ground.
The man makes sure to check on the newly-freed dog to see if there’s any lasting damage, and she wags her tail, letting the man know how grateful she is.
We’re glad the man noticed the poor dog’s predicament and came to her aid! Watch the rescue in the video below.
