Colombia has seen massive flooding. A llandslide in the town of Salgar has taken over a dozen lives, with many still missing. In the landslide, Colombian police forces spotted a dog caught in the rushing flood waters.

As the dog fought to keep its head above water while bouncing off rocks and debris, one sure-footed officer jumped into the powerful current and snatched up the helpless animal just in time.

Salgar continues to salvage and rebuild, but there is a small glint of hope for the future in seeing people come together to help save a life.
