Hero Students Save a Dog From Drowning

A True Story

We have all heard and loved stories about people doing heroic, selfless acts. Another heartwarming story has emerged about a group of hero students who worked together to save a dog from drowning in a canal in Ancoats, Manchester. The now famous students, 20-year-olds Jack Spencer Furmston and Ben Camphor were passing by the canal when they saw another fellow Batu Akyol holding a leash over the wall next to a canal. Their first thought was that Batu might be walking his duck. On closer inspection, they realized that his dog Sumak was in some serious trouble in the water.

The Rescue

The Rescue

They couldn’t bear to let the abandoned dog go without help. Hence, despite the potential danger, they quickly sprang into action. Ben placed his sweater on the ground to cushion the fall and carefully climbed down to reach the drowning dog. After pulling off the daring and heartwarming rescue mission, everyone involved was ecstatic. These hero students didn’t hesitate even for a second to help Sumak, even though it meant risking their well-being and safety. Their selflessness and bravery melted the hearts of many and reminded people to be kind and compassionate. Such acts of kindness give us a sense of reassurance that our world isn’t all that bad.

What Drove This Heroism?

As a fellow dog parent, Ben knew how important pets are to their owners. Ben could not bear the thought of leaving a helpless animal behind. This act of heroism encouraged more people around the canal to extend a helping hand, and soon, five more heroes joined in, holding Ben by his legs and lowering his head toward the water. Thanks to everyone’s help, Ben was able to grasp the dog by the collar. The rest of the group pulled them both back towards solid ground. The dog took a sigh of relief and wagged his tail non-stop upon hitting dry land.
