In frigid weather, a sick dog got his tongue stuck to a manhole cover.
When a Good Samaritan rushed in to aid with the solution, the sobbing dog was desperately attempting to free its own frozen tongue.
When a bystander noticed the unfortunate animal’s condition, he ran over and poured his bottle of water down his tongue, trying to boost the temperature and liberate him.
The man is seen slowly pouring the liquid while the dog wiggles about.
The dog was eventually released and was glad to approach the guy for a stroking after his trauma.
It is unclear whether the dog had an owner or was a stray, or whether it had any veterinary care.
On Thursday, the clip was shot in Vladivostok, Russia.
This good Samaritan used warm water to help the dog escape from his tongue becoming stuck in a frozen well.
