Dog Rescued after Being Buried Alive for 18 Hours in a Mudslide

A week ago, a mudslide near the village of Joya Grande in northwestern Guatemala destroyed several houses. Tragically, several people died.

A dog was among the survivors. Rescue workers heard a persistent tapping sound from inside the rubble. They assumed that some person was down there, so they started digging. As they got closer, they heard the sound of barking.

They found a stray male dog in the rubble. You can see the dramatic rescue in the video embedded below. The rescue workers have named him Afortunado, which means "Lucky One." Although he suffered dehydration and mild shock, he's okay and is available for adoption.
