A police officer’s duty is often described as ‘To Serve And Protect’, and the officer in the video below truly exemplified those duties by putting an animal’s safety before his own.
The dramatic footage shows the officer rescuing a fenced-in dog from a raging fire in Mexico. As the menacing inferno rages on, the officer tries to calm the frightened pup before picking her up and bringing her to safety.
Mexico’s Federal Police shared the shocking footage on Facebook with the caption: “When doing our work we are faced with different challenges, always aimed at protecting life.” They shared no other details about the rescue, but the incredible rescue has gone viral.
