                A dog was rescued from the water by a Corpus Christi Police Officer on his lunch break at Cole Park Wednesday afternoon.

Corpus Christi Police Senior Officer Jason Lee took his lunch break at the 1500 block of Ocean Drive at Cole Park at about 12:30 in the afternoon. A woman attracted Officer Lee’s attention and said her dog fell into the water and was unable to get out of the water.

Officer Lee saw a Doberman splash in the water and become fatigued and unable to get out of the water because of a vertical cliff next to the water. The dog had fallen off of the cliff into the water and was unable to get out.

Officer Lee reached over the ledge and pulled the dog to safety.
