Lost but found: Man makes daring dog rescue on jet ski

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

So much for a relaxing holiday.

A local man went out for a leisurely ride on his jet ski Wednesday and suddenly had to come to the rescue – of a dog.

Brian Peterson was out on the Alafia River when he saw a woman on a dock, trying to get his attention. As he got closer, he noticed a dog struggling in the water.

He was able to pull the dog out and put her on his jet ski. Then he got a surprise.

"Grabbed her, grabbed the Jet Ski, started paddling the best I could, and then I put her up there and started going towards the lady," he said. "Never did I think when I was saving this dog that the lady that showed it to me wasn't going to be her dog."

It wasn't the woman's dog, and no one knows who it belongs to, so Peterson said he's going to keep it until the owner turns up.
