Firefighters Rescue Dog Floating in Rain-Swollen LA River

from nbc

A dog struggling to keep its head above water in the roiling Los Angeles river was hoisted to safety in a heroic aerial rescue Friday afternoon.
The dog was spotted in the water at 3:45 p.m. Friday in Toluca Lake near the Barham Boulevard overpass of the river, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. 
It was swept miles downriver and saved in Glendale, near the 5 Freeway overpass.
The dog was in the river after a sudden thunderstorm in the San Fernando Valley flooded the river.
Preliminary reports say the dog is a yellow labrador retriever, fire officials said.
