Dog Swimming 135 Miles Offshore Gets Rescued

Workers of an oil rig crew, rescue a dog swimming 220 kilometers off the shore of Bangkok, Thailand.

Visitak Payalaw, an employee of Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production, spotted the dog paddling near the oil rig, cold and shivering, but managed to make it to the platform of the oil rig.

The crew managed to rescue the brown canine by putting a rope around its neck and pulling him up.

Once on board, the crew bathed the dog and gave him some water and an electrolyte drink.



The crew named the dog, Boonrod, which means "survivor". Boonrod is an Aspin, a breed native to the Philippines. It is speculated that Boonrod might have fallen off a fishing trawler.

Boonrod was taken ashore to the southern port of Songkhla by boat on April 15 and was said to be in recovering well by Watchdog Thailand.
