WATCH: Two men rescue dog from waters off of East Boston

BOSTON — Two men played the role of “hero” Tuesday afternoon when they spotted a dog struggling to swim in Boston Harbor.

Crews responded to the waters off Lewis Street around 6:30 p.m. for a report of two men in the water with a dog.

Cell phone video shows the two good Samaritans paddling to shore with a white dog on top of a flotation device.

Both the men and the dog were uninjured and made it safely to shore.

It is unclear how the dog got in the water in the first place.
