(Scroll down for video) A man is being called a hero after he put his life in danger to save a dog.
The man of India, who was identified as Ganpat, saved the dog from drowning after the animal fell into a well.
At first glance into the well, it seemed like a brown bag was floating in circles amongst other trash inside.
However, people soon realized that it was not a bag, but rather a brown dog struggling to stay above the water.
The brave charity worker, who works for the local animal shelter, agreed to go down into the well and rescue the dog.
It took teamwork to safely get the rescue worker into the well. A rope harness was tied around his chest and the group held it while the rescue worker lowered himself down to get the dog.
Thankfully, the man was able to reach the dog before it drowned. A video uploaded to the Internet showed the dramatic rescue of the dog, and how the two were pulled back to safety.
Rescuers then drove the dog to the Street Animal Charity Animal Aid center, where it got the care and pampering it needed.
