A heartwarming video captured the moment police officers rescued a dog from certain death by pulling it from a landslide.
The animal was spotted by two officers who were on patrol in the town of Salgar, Colombia, which was hit by a devastating landslide leaving more than 60 people dead.
They noticed the dog being pulled by the dangerous currents of the Liboriana River, which burst its banks after heavy rains, and acted instinctively in their bid to save it.
In the clip, a heartwarming scene from the area which has been struck by tragedy, the animal can be seen flailing as it crashes into rocks and is thrown about by the current like a rag doll.
The officers risk their own lives by jumping into the fast moving water to rescue it.
Once captured the dog is brought to the bank where two officers attempt to resuscitate it by pumping its chest and performing CPR.
Later in the clip the animal is on its feet despite appearing to be extremely weary.
According to local media, the dog had suffered injuries from the rocks in the river but is expected to make a full recovery.
Colombia's northwest mountain region has been ravaged by landslides of late.
In Salgar more than 60 people have been killed after a landslide in the early hours of Monday morning brought mud and water down onto homes in the worst disaster of its kind for a decade.
With more people still being reported missing, the death toll is expected to rise even further.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos travelled to the area on Monday, declaring a state of emergency and promising to rebuild homes.
