On Wednesday, a U.S. Coast Guard crew in Florida was called for an unusual rescue.
When people discovered a dog in distress swimming offshore, they called in the Coast Guard to help.
"While our crew was out underway for a night patrol, we received a call for a dog in distress swimming off Fort Myers Beach/Bowditch Point," Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach wrote on Facebook.
Luckily, the crew got to the dog in time and pulled her to safety aboard their patrol vessel.
"Thanks to the crew’s expertise in intercepting non-compliant vessels (NCV) and recovering a person in the water (PIW), our 'star' of the night was safely recovered and returned to her owner!" they added.
