Mason Ringer said he was on a lunch break with his friends when the group decided to briefly go out in a boat on the Okatie River, but things took dangerous a turn when their boat capsized. Ringer said he tried to get to the dock, but couldn't since he was swimming against the current.
"I rolled over on my back and I closed my eyes and said a prayer to God asking him to help me somehow," Ringer said. "Then I heard the dog bark on the dock."
The yellow Labrador jumped into the water and Ringer was able to grab the animal’s collar as the pup pulled him to shore. Ringer had already been in the water for an hour.
