17-year-old Scotsman Connor Telford had no idea that his trip to the forest of the Penllergeir Valley would make a lasting impression on him.
When Connor saw a dog in the water fighting for his life, he was with his girlfriend and her mother.
The dog tried to escape from the water, as he was about to drown, but in vain.
The courageous teenager dived into the water without hesitation before saving the defenseless unfortunate puppy.
Charlie, a 7-year-old terrier, and his devoted owner, Jane Warner, had a great day together in the Valley.
He hadn’t chased ducks before, but he did when he spotted some of them. But this sweet game quickly turned into a disaster.
He did not even notice his unexpected appearance in the middle of the lake.
Because of the reeds that prevented him from swimming, Charlie began to sink, struggling to stay afloat.
Frightened and bewildered, the owner stood in despair on the shore of the lake.
She just sobbed. Hopeless Jane had already begun to fear losing her cherished pet, and then a miracle happened.
She witnessed how the teenager bravely saved Charlie by diving into the ocean.
Jane was so grateful and excited as she hugged her puppy again.
She was incredibly thankful for the courageous guy who risked his own life to save her pet.
If not for him, things could have gone differently. He is truly a hero.
Jane’s adored Charlie is still alive thanks to Connor.
