Dog Rescued From Phoenix Canal After Trying 'to Escape Arizona Heat'

A dog was rescued from a canal in Phoenix on April 28 after it jumped to cool off from the hot weather but then couldn’t find a way back out, police said.

Bodycam video released by the Phoenix Police Department shows officers using a net to catch the Labrador in the water, and then grabbing it by the collar to pull it out to safety.

“Last week, this good boy decided to go for a swim in a canal to escape the Arizona heat,” the Phoenix Police wrote on Facebook. “Thankfully, officers were there to get the exhausted lab out of the canal.” Credit: Phoenix Police Department via Storyful
