Dog Rescued 137 Miles From Shore in Gulf of Thailand

Workers from the Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production Ltd. oil rig rescued a dog swimming 137 miles offshore in the Gulf of Thailand

Rig worker Vitisak Payalaw, an offshore planner with Chevron, told CNN that fellow staff members spotted the dog swimming towards the platform on the afternoon of April 12, and held out a pole for him.

The brown mongrel, christened Boonrod - "Survivor" - by its rescuers, was pulled from the Gulf of Thailand by workers on an oil rig.

"I thought that if we didn't move quickly, I would not be able to help him", said Payalaw. Payalaw speculated that the dog may have belonged to someone on a fishing trawler and may have fallen off at some point.

The dog found swimming more than 220 kilometers (135 miles) from shore by an oil rig crew in the Gulf of Thailand was returned safely to land.

The conditions were said to have been calm during the rescue, which workers said made it easier to spot Boonrod among the rusty metal bars of the rig.

The workers then chose to throw a rope around the pooch and pull him up.

Vitisak Payalaw said on Facebook the dog was lucky to have been spotted as higher waves would have hidden the canine.
