With a forecast of heavy rain and flooding on the way in late October, two city officials went to the river to scope out troubled spots. Then, they noticed splashing in the water.
Somebody was drowning in the river.
Immediately, they called Savannah, Georgia's Fire Marine Unit "Courageous." Mark Keller, the public information officer, told The Dodo the unit "lived up to the vessel's name today."
Upon the rescue team's arrival, "the Captain could see that what they initially thought was a person was actually [a] family's dog," Keller explained.
