Thai Oil Rig Workers Rescue Dog Found Swimming 135 Miles Offshore


"We just saw her small head but if the ripples were bigger, I think we probably wouldn't have noticed her at all."

Working on an isolated oil rig in the middle of the ocean would likely cause many people to start losing their mind at some point. And when workers on an oil rig 135 miles offshore in the Gulf of Thailand recently noticed a dog paddling toward them, they surely couldn’t believe their eyes.But this brown Aspin was no illusion. According to the Daily Mail, workers first noticed the pup as its head bobbed in and out of the water, then rapidly focused on getting it aboard the rig as it came near.“We found her trying to swim towards our rig, which is about 135 miles from the shore,” said Vitisak. “Thankfully the sea was quite still because the wind was calm. We just saw her small head but if the ripples were bigger, I think we probably wouldn’t have noticed her at all.”
While nobody quite yet understands how this impressive pooch — named Boonrod, or Survivor, by the workers — managed to swim so far into the endless ocean, there are essentially two viable theories thus far: she either jumped off a ship nearby or has swimming stamina that is nothing short of shocking.
