A dog in Colombia lived to see another day after a police officer rescued it from a raging river and used mouth-to-mouth to resuscitate it.

According to The Guardian, the dog fell into the violent current of the Liboriana river on Wednesday following a rainstorm, and two officers ran to assist after they spotted the pup flailing in the water.

In the video, the officers run to a spot where they can quickly grab the dog and pull it to safety. One of them performs mouth-to-mouth on the dog.

The canine suffered injuries, the report said, but is expected to make a full recovery.

The dog is lucky, indeed: Mudslides in the region killed at least 78 people this week, according to TIME.
