A few days ago, oil dig workers in Thailand noticed a poor dog swimming next to their drilling station
One of the employees, Vitisak Payalaw, quickly took his camera and started capturing what he saw. According to Payalaw’s facebook post, they saw his head while the dog was swimming towards their platform. Luckily, it was a rather calm afternoon and the waves were small, otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to see her.
Workers tried to think of ways to rescue him but they were also racing against time since the waves were getting bigger and bigger. They finally decided to tie a rope around her and pull her in.
The dog was 130 miles away from the shore making it nearly impossible for him to survive, and yet somehow she did
According to Payalaw, when the dog was clinging to the pole but he didn’t make any noise and was absolutely exhausted.
People guess that the dog might have fallen from a fishing trawler or jumped out of a vessel where she suffered abuse
Now the puppy has been given all the necessary mineral supplements and is feeling a lot better
She stayed on the drilling platform for two days while a special cage was build that helped to move her
She was then taken to vets in Songkhla, southern Thailand where they will do further tests to check if everything is ok with her health.
One of the oil rig workers says he would like to adopt her if her owner doesn’t come through
He also added he is looking forward to spending many years together with her. The puppy was given the name Boonrod which in Thai means “making a spiritual donation for good luck in the future.”
This story, that many call a miracle, quickly spread online and despite many people offering their help, Vitisak has declared he will not be accepting any donations.
