Carver Police Officer David Harriman is being hailed a hero after this photo of him went viral this week.
The photo shows him moments after diving under eight feet of murky water to save a dog trapped in a submerged pickup truck, emerging from the water carrying the dog he just saved from drowning.
The rescue happened after 59-year-old Debra Titus of Plymouth, MA drove her 2004 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck with her two dogs inside into a lake at South Meadow village. The Plymouth woman and one of her dogs were able to get out of the car and to safety but the other dog, Moochie, was still inside the completely submerged vehicle when Officer David Harriman, a dog lover, dove into the water and was able to open the truck door and rescue the dog. Carver Police Department later said that Moochie was shaken up but in good health.
Good job officer. Way to protect, serve and somehow find the time to be incredibly photogenic!
