Firefighters are surely some of the most courageous people ever to walk the planet. They have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and they don’t even give it a second thought when they have to run inside a burning building or a burning forest. However, firefighters aren’t just known for fire fighting. They’re also known to perform other duties to save lives.
Firefighters are always called upon to help with search and rescue and they even get called to free people trapped inside cars involved in accidents. However, one particular firefighter stole the hearts of thousands of people when he was caught on camera doing a courageous act. This particular firefighter is named Emilio Sanchez.
A senior dog named Junior was able to escape from his family and decided to swim in a nearby body of water. However, Junior was swept away by the current and it was seen by concerned individuals that Junior was struggling to keep himself afloat. Thankfully, someone had the right idea to call the fire department.
The fire department sent a crew from the Miami Beach Fire Department and Emilio happened to be on duty. As soon as they arrived, Emilio took off his clothes and went into the water. Emilio swam straight towards Junior and as soon as he was able to secure Junior, he started swimming back to shore making sure that Junior was relaxed and able to breathe.
Everyone who saw the action unfold is so grateful for what Emilio has done for Junior and his family. Junior was a little wet and shaken from his experience but he’s okay and didn’t suffer any serious injuries. Eventually, Junior was dried off and his family was contacted. The grateful family went straight to the fire department to be reunited with their beloved dog, Junior.
Junior is also very happy to see his family again and couldn’t stop wagging his tail when he saw his dad. Thanks to Emilio, Junior, and his family had a happy ending in what could have been a horrible tragedy. Here’s a video showing Emilio in action saving Junior’s life and reuniting him with his family.
