Incredible moment man risks serious injury to rescue small dog (Video)

The clip begins with with witnesses calling to the small dog, which resembles a cockapoo or labradoodle, to encourage it to escape, but it refuses to move.

After a few minutes, the mystery daredevil springs into action.

Without a care for his own safety, the man climbs over a barrier and negotiates his way around 30ft down the steep embankment towards the petrified pooch.

Once at the bottom, he grabs the dog by the collar and drags it to safety.

It’s unclear where the incident took place.
