Matt Corasanti of Canton may enjoy kayaking in the harbor after work, but I’ll bet he’s not typically very eager to swim in its notoriously polluted waters. But sometimes there’s a puppy that needs your help.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Corasanti was just wrapping up his evening kayaking session when he was approached by a “frantic” man whose dog had fallen into the water.
Corasanti, who quickly re-kayaked, paddled his way toward the puppy. But when he found he couldn’t reach the dog, he did something every Baltimorean hopes he will never be forced to do: take a dip in the harbor.
Corasanti, doing his best “not to get any water in [his] eyes or mouth” swam to dog and and handed him off to his owner who reached down from the dock.
The first thing Corasanti did when he got home? Took a shower. Let’s hope the puppy got a bath.
