A ill dog's tongue became caught to a manhole cover in the bitter cold.
The crying dog was urgently trying to free its own frozen tongue when a Good Samaritan came in to help with the remedy.
When a passerby saw the poor animal's plight, he went over and poured water from his bottle down his mouth in an effort to raise his temperature and free him.
The dog is seen moving about while the man carefully pours the drink.
After being freed, the dog was relieved to approach the man and receive a stroke.
The dog's owner or whether it was a stray are both unknown, as also whether it received veterinary attention.
The video was recorded in Vladivostok, Russia, on Thursday.
The dog's tongue became trapped in a frozen well, and the good Samaritan used warm water to free it.
