Russian soldiers rescue an Arctic dog after it escaped from its home and got lost in a sea of ice. The rescue was recorded by a drone (see above).
The icebreaker Alexander Sannikov was near the Arctic Gateway station when her crew discovered the animal. She could have been hit by the movement of ships at the site, and the sailors immediately decided to save her.
To make matters worse, there was no way the dog could get back to shore alone, because the ice had already begun to float away and there were many cracks in its surface. If he stays there, you will surely die soon.
The crew has extended what they call a ceremonial ladder so the animal can climb aboard. They later found out that the owners of the one-year-old Aika had been looking for her for over a week.
“We explored all the possibilities of how to get the animal out of the ice and put a ceremonial ladder to climb on. Later, we used our communication devices to communicate with the locals, found its owner, and after a few hours returned safely to the village,” summarized Yevgeny Nagibin, assistant Captain Alexander Sannikov.
