More info...sad story.
http://www.pawnation.com/2012/01/09/...y-unlucky-dog/

A kayaker who likes to film his fishing outings for YouTube captured himself rescuing a dog swimming far out from the shore. As you can see in the video above, the YouTuber found the swimming dog distressed, terrified, and injured. The man pulled the dog from the water and brought him to shore, then to a vet where the animal was identified through its microchip.

Unfortunately, the events leading to the dog, Barney, swimming out to sea are tragic ones. Barney's owner, Donna Chen, was walking him when a drunk driver lost control of her vehicle and struck Chen and Barney on the sidewalk. Barney fled the scene in panic and Chen was killed.

Thankfully the kind-hearted kayaker rescued Barney and returned him to his family. We'll offer no further commentary on the matter other than to say this: (1) We're so happy Barney is OK, and (2) don't drink and drive!

Ya I was expecting to see a shark swim up and scare the guy. Was happy to see the dog rescued but the rest of the details about the owner are just horrible. sad stuff there
