Dog rescued 220km from Thai coast by rig workers

15 April 2019

A dog discovered some 220km (135 miles) off the coast of Thailand has been rescued by a team of oil rig workers after the exhausted pooch was spotted paddling near a drilling platform.

The brown aspin swam towards the workers when they called out to him last Friday afternoon. He was then pulled to safety.

It is not clear how the dog became stranded so far out at sea. Some reports suggest he may have fallen from a fishing trawler.

The rig workers named the dog Boonrod, a Thai word that roughly translates as "the saved one" or "survivor".


Boonrod was said to have been exhausted and in need of fresh drinking water and food. (Viralpress)


The dog was said to have been in good spirits when he arrived on land to be taken to the vet. (Viralpress)
