Μάλλον το πιο τυχερό σκυλάκι του κόσμου. Επιβίωσε θαμμένο στην λάσπη

It is usually cats that have nine lives - but this plucky pooch has that and more after surviving an incredible 18 hours underground.  Nicknamed el Afortunado - The Lucky One - he lived through mudslides and chaos caused by torrential rains in Guatemala that have killed nearly 50 people in recent days.  Afortunado never gave up hope in his subterranean tomb, barking constantly in a bid to attract human attention to his canine plight.  He was buried in Joya Grande village, north-western Guatemala, after an avalanche sent the mountainside crashing on to the primitive houses.  Jose Guerdola, one of the team members sent to search for survivors, said: "We were looking for people and always, always was this faint sound, like a permanent rapping or tapping.  "We assumed it was someone trapped in a cellar who was hitting a pipe. We dug and dug, and we sweated and slaved, and as we got closer we realised it was the barking of a dog.  "When we broke through to where he was he jumped into our arms and licked our faces.  Unfortunately there was no-one left alive in the rubble with him but we took him to safety."  Local vets checked up on Afortunado and, apart from mild shock and dehydration, he is none the worse for his ordeal. He has been placed in the care of a local animal shelter until a family can be found that will take him in.  (ends)¬¬

Το βασανισμένο και φοβισμένο κουτάβι απεγκλώβισαν οι διασώστες στη Γουατεμάλα, όπου και συνέβη το περιστατικό. Δείτε τις φωτογραφίες

Δέκα οκτώ ολόκληρες ώρες επιβίωσε ένα κουταβάκι στη Γουατεμάλα, μέχρις ότου το εντοπίσουν διασώστες.

Οι ισχυρές βροχές προκάλεσαν κατολισθήσεις και τόνοι λάσπης έπνιξαν κυριολεκτικά περιοχές της χώρας.

Στη δημοκρατία αυτή της κεντρικής Αμερικής, 50 άνθρωποι έχασαν τη ζωή τους την περασμένη εβδομάδα, με το χωριό Joya Grand να βιώνει τη μεγαλύτερη καταστροφή.

Στο σκυλάκι που διασώθηκε δώθηκε το παρατσούκλι "ο τυχερός", στη γλώσσα της Γουατεμάλα el Afontunado.

Ο διασώστης του δήλωσε:

"Ψάχναμε για παγιδευμένους ανθρώπους", όταν είδαν το κεφάλι του κουταβιού να είναι έξω από την λάσπη.

Όσο για τι τι έγινε μετά...

"Μόλις το ελευθερώσαμε, αν και καταπονημένο, πήδηξε στην αγκαλιά μας και άρχισε να μας γλύφει. Το πήραμε μαζί μας".
