Students Pull Off Daring Upside-Down Rescue Mission to Save Dog Who Fell in Canal

It’s always heartening to hear stories of people going out of their way to help animals in distress. Recently, a group of students in Manchester, England, pulled off an extraordinary rescue mission to save a dog named Sumak who had fallen into the Ancoats Canal.


This incident took place when Jack Spencer Furmston and Ben Camphor, both 20-year-old students, were walking home from a coffee shop. They saw a stranger in distress, with his dog struggling to cling to the side of the wall as he held on to the leash.

Without hesitation, Jack and Ben decided to stop and help. As others joined in, they embarked on a daring rescue mission. Ben went over the wall head-first as five others held his feet, dangling him upside-down to reach the dog in the water and pull him to safety.


The rescue was caught on camera by Dabhidh MchicEamailinn, who shared it on Twitter. The video went viral, with over 2.8 million views. The students were hailed as heroes for their bravery and quick thinking. Ben told MailOnline, “Everyone was panicking. I couldn’t let that dog down and not help, so I put my jumper down and sprung into action.” Their selflessness and bravery are an inspiration to us all.

The story serves as a reminder that we all have the power to make a difference in the world, no matter how small the act. These students demonstrated that even a seemingly impossible task can be achieved with teamwork and determination.

We thank these students for their incredible rescue mission, and we hope their story inspires others to help animals in need. Please share this inspiring story to spread the message of hope and kindness.
