Caught on camera: How a tiny dog swept out to sea was rescued


An "exhausted and wet" pet dog was dramatically rescued after being swept out to sea on Sunday. The lucky pooch was spotted by a British coastguard helicopter which was on a training exercise off the coast of Scotland. 

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency received a frantic call reporting that a Cockerpoo - a mixed-breed dog that is the cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a poodle - had been swept out to sea. 

A Coastguard helicopter, which was training in the area at the time, was quickly able to locate the tiny dog. Rescue crew in the chopper kept their eyes on the pooch until a lifeboat was able to pull the dog on board.
