The Boston Fire Department reports that around 9:40 a.m., its dive team rescued a 12-year-old dog who swam out too far in Pleasure Bay and then couldn't get back to shore.
The rescue happened approximately 200 feet from shore. The owner stated that Kai likes to swim but went out a little too far and wasn’t able to swim back. The dog was in the water approx 30-40 minutes before BFD arrival.
The department adds:
The companies just had water rescue training last week and it showed today. A great job by all ,and a happy ending. Kai was treated @BOSTON_EMS and went to the hospital with the owner.
