Puppy survives boating accident

On a hot day last July, Erin’s family rented a pontoon boat on Diamond Lake. The family was camping nearby, on a vacation from Washougal, Washington.

After a beautiful day in the sunshine, and playing in the water, the family went to dock the boat at 4 p.m. and the unthinkable happened.

As Erin stepped off the boat, Harper followed — but she misjudged the distance between the boat and the dock and fell in the water. They heard a yelp and knew she’d been hit by the propeller.

Watch the full video to learn how Erin’s family came to Harper’s rescue and rushed her to our hospital to save her life.
