Man rescues dog tied up in flooded house


A man rescued a dog left tied up at a flooded house in the town of Cagayan de Oro on Thursday afternoon.

Video was taken by Bernie Cruz on Acacia Street in Cagayan de Oro on Wednesday afternoon showing a man swimming in a flood to save a dog.

The white dog was perched on a tree near the flooded house. It will soon be washed away by the floodwaters.

Juneczar Sancho swam it quickly. Then he climbed onto the roof of the house to save the tethered dog.

Juneczar said he felt sorry for the dog, so he didn’t hesitate to save him. He spoke to the dog to calm him down.

Juneczar cut the dog’s leash and placed it on the roof of the house to prevent it from being washed away by the flood waters. Juneczar was unable to get the dog across to the other building, where he took refuge due to the strong current of the flood waters. They will wait for the water to calm down before returning to pick up the dog.

According to videographer Bernie, they saw another dog in the house, but he was swept away by the flood. It is possible that the dogs were left behind by the owner’s evacuation.

Currently, the flood water level in the region is still high as the rains caused by Typhoon Odette continue.

Man trapped in flood rescued after nearly 5 hours

It took nearly five hours to rescue Roberto Janubas, 50, in Sitio Alog, Lower Jasaan, Misamis Oriental, Thursday afternoon.

Rescuers from the Jasaan Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO), Jasaan Municipal Police Station and residents took Janubas to the riverside, stranded in a small hut.

He went to the hut because the flood washed away his residence. Typhoon Odette brought heavy rains, so water overflowed from the nearby Cabulig River.

The rescue team made several attempts to approach Janubas but were unsuccessful due to the force of the flooding.

It was 6 p.m. when Janubas was rescued.

He first took refuge in the evacuation center of the central school in Jasaan.
