Lobsterman saves dog swimming all alone in middle of ocean
NORTH HAVEN, Mass. - A dog named Maddie is back with its owner after a group of boaters spotted her swimming all alone in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
According to NECN, a ferry off the coast of Falmouth, Massachusetts, was on its way to Martha’s Vineyard when passengers spotted a dog desperately paddling toward their boat.
"Everyone on the boat was like, ‘Oh my God! We have to help him,'" Carol Potier told NECN.
The ferry was too high, and crew members couldn’t quite reach the dog, but they managed to flag down a nearby fishing boat.
According to Maine Marine Patrol, lobsterman Corey Beverage was able to pluck the dog from the water.
Other fishermen aboard the boat contacted Marine Patrol, which was able to locate Maddie’s owner.
Maine Marine Patrol said Maddie was separated from her owner when she went in the water while on her owner's recreational boat. The two have since been reunited.
