A dog is being hailed as a hero after a quick decision that may have saved a baby’s life. The incident was caught on film at Kabak Bay on the south-west coast of Turkey.
In the following video, you can see the dog playing a game of fetch while the baby is inching closer and closer to the crashing waves. Suddenly, the dog takes off towards the wandering baby and lies down, shielding him from the sea.
Seconds later, the concerned mom scoops up the baby to safety. However, if it wasn't for the quick-thinking canine the day may have ended much differently.
