A woman and her beloved pet dog were seen sinking in quicksand, rescue workers in the United Kingdom said.

The Herne Bay Coast Guard said that they rescued two women and a dog after they got stuck in the quicksand.

The Herne Bay Coast Guard was called to help the three on Sunday, but after realizing that the three were buried to their waists, the fire department was called. After being pulled out, the three did not require further medical assistance.

Investigators said that the two women got into trouble after trying to rescue the dog. This was the third such incident in the same area reported on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, a man was rescued after getting stuck in quicksand while riding his bike. A woman was also pulled from the mud after getting stuck while enjoying herself at the beach.

A spokesperson for the coastguard has urged people not to try to rescue pets, but to call rescue workers instead.
