A Plymouth woman drove her Toyota Tacoma pickup truck into eight feet of water near South Meadow Village in Carver, Mass. Saturday afternoon, according to a Carver Police Department press release. Debra Titus, 59, managed to get out of the vehicle but her two dogs were still in the truck.
Carver police responded to the scene. When Officers Melo and Harriman arrived, one dog had been able to escape the submerged truck but the other had not. Officer Harriman, described as “an avid dog lover”, took off his gun belt and immediately dove into the water.
While in the depths of the murky water, Officer Harriman opened the vehicle's door and pulled the dog out. The dog was reportedly okay and returned to Titus.
