WATCH: Police risk their lives to save dog from flash flood

Police in Colombia risked their lives to rescue a dog that got caught in a flash flood.

Cell phone video shows a group of officers running along the edge of a river as a dog's head bobbed in the muddy current.

One officer jumped in, and after almost being dragged under, pulled the dog to safety. A colleague then performed CPR on the dog. 

The rescue happened Wednesday in Salgar, which has been hit by deadly mudslides.
