This bachelor party made a sudden transition and became a rescue party when they stumbled upon a St.Bernard in a precarious situation.
While enjoying a canoe ride along the Minnesota River, the bachelor party heard a faint bark emanating from the muddy riverbank.
To their astonishment, they discovered a dog’s head barely visible, stuck deep in a mud pit.
Without hesitation, the group of 11 men sprang into action and used their oars as makeshift shovels, digging tirelessly for over half an hour.
Although the group provided Ed with food and water, it was evident that the dog had depleted all its energy.
Ed had been missing for over a day - meaning he might have been trapped for nearly 24 hours.
Ed’s owner, George Niskanen, was relieved and grateful. He shared that Ed occasionally roams but always returns.
While bachelor parties are occasions of party and celebration, this particular one will stand out in their memories for other reasons.
Their swift action and determination not only saved a life but also showcased the essence of humanity.
