Carver, Massachusetts police responded on Saturday afternoon to a call reporting a vehicle completely submerged under about 8 feet of murky water.
When they arrived, Officers Melo and Harriman discovered that 59-year old Debra Titus and her 2 dogs had been inside the truck when she accidentally drove it into the pond. Titus, along with one of her dogs, managed to escape, but a second dog was still trapped inside.
Officer David Harriman, an avid dog lover, removed his gun belt, gave it to his fellow officer, and dove without hesitation into the water. Harriman said the water was so murky that it was hard to see his hand in front of his face.
“He wasn’t moving at all when I first got to him, and then when I got him to the surface, he came to,” he told WCVB News. “He’d been under the water for quite some time.”
“It’s kind of like a family member to most people, and you gotta get it out, if you can,” he said.
Harriman has an 8-month old English Bulldog named Jax who he says he would do anything for.
The driver of the truck and both dogs are doing very well.
