Teenagers Brave Dirty Bangkok Canal To Rescue Dog

There’s no way we’d be jumping into one of the stinking sewage-infested canals in Bangkok.

But these teenagers put aside the foul stench and over-powering pollution to wade through a klong – and rescue a stranded stray dog.

Pornpipat Suwanakar, 19, spotted the hapless mutt balancing on a floating piece of debris after falling into the waterway on Sunday afternoon.

The lad and two pals clambered down and stood in the dirty water to catch the mutt and carry him to safety.

The heroic actions went viral and Pornipat and the two friends, Pongdej SiyaIam and Thanaphon Suphachi, were praised as heroes.

Pornpipat, who filmed the clip, said: ”The dog was just floating in the water and we had to catch him like we were fishing.

”I’m not sure what would have happened to him and how he fell into the water. The canal is so dirty and smells a lot. It’s lucky there was something for him to stand on.

”The dog was happy that he was rescued. And we were happy to have a shower after.”
