An Amazon delivery driver saved an elderly dog from drowning earlier this summer in Woburn, Massachusetts.

As he was delivering a package, John Cassabria spotted the canine struggling in the backyard pool.

"I saw what looked like a snout and at that moment my heart sank," Cassabria said. "I jumped into the pool with everything on. Phone, wallet, watch. None of it mattered. I thought only of the dog at that moment."

The dog's owner, Julie Caldwell said she was "in tears" and "could not believe it" when she was told the news.

"I happened to be in the right moment at the right time. I would repeat the same actions over and over if I had to," Cassabria said.

Cassabria stayed with the dog for an hour and a half until the scheduled dog-sitter arrived.
