It's one of the stories that cable news excels at covering: dramatic animal rescue! This poor dog had been stuck for some time in overflowing waters caused by the constant rain in Los Angeles. Bravely leaving his perch, he made his way to the edge but the wall was too steep for him to climb it.

Thankfully, a helicopter lowered a rescue worker into the water who was able lasso the understandably defensive and confused animal and get him to safety.

Good job everyone.
