As a friend looks on from above, the brave man waits for the struggling dog to pass by and manages to grab its legs and scoop it into his arms.

While the man tries to shuffle up the bank with the dog, his pal eventually goes over to the rope to help pull them up.

According to local media, the video was filmed by an eyewitness who shared it on Facebook where it has been seen 70,000 times.

Reports said that the stream was overflowing following a period of heavy rains.

It is not yet clear whether the dog suffered any injuries or how it ended up in the stream.

Netizen ‘Isabel Perez Capcha’ commented: “So there are people with a kind heart! Thank you for saving its life.”

‘Sofia Hernandez’ said: “God bless you for saving the animal’s life!”
