New Delhi, September 2 (ANI): A pet dog has saved three children from drowning in a raging river in China.

One child, however, died in the incident that took place in Tianmen, Hubei province, on Sunday.

Hua Hua had accompanied the four primary school students from the Fangwan village to a nearby riverbank.

When it saw the kids falling into the river while playing on the rocks, the dog jumped in to save them, reports the China Daily.

It grabbed one of the kids by the shoulder with its mouth, as the struggling children held on to each other’s hands, and pulled them ashore.

The fourth child drowned because he could not reach his friends in time when the dog was pulling them to safety. (ANI)
