Recently, heavy rainfall has caused deadly flooding and mudslides in the northwest region of South America, and in Peru, the flooding and mudslides have already killed more than 70 people and left thousands homeless.
Yet in the midst of all the devastation, a reporter from Peruvian news channel Latina Noticias has been applauded by viewers around the world for rescuing a helpless animal in the middle of a live broadcast where he was supposed to be reporting on the flood conditions.
Recently, Aaron Rodriguez had been sent out to report on the flooding, but in the middle of the broadcast, he spotted a small dog struggling in the water. The dog was clearly exhausted and struggling to stay above the water and Rodriguez knew the dog would drown without his help.
So in the middle of a live TV broadcast, Rodriguez stopped everything, went after the small dog, and managed to pick him up. Even though Rodriguez was on live TV, he then continued to walk around for a few minutes looking for higher ground where he could safely drop the dog off.
Watch the entire video below to see the amazing moment this news reporter went above and beyond to save a drowning animal.
