In frigid weather, a sick dog got his tongue stuck to a manhole cover.
When a Good Samaritan rushed in to aid with the solution, the sobbing dog was desperately attempting to free its own frozen tongue.
The man is seen slowly pouring the liquid while the dog wiggles about.
The dog was eventually released and was glad to approach the guy for a stroking after his trauma.
It is unclear whether the dog had an owner or was a stray, or whether it had any veterinary care.
On Thursday, the clip was shot in Vladivostok, Russia.
This good Samaritan used warm water to help the dog escape from his tongue becoming stuck in a frozen well.
