La Palma: Police rescued dog water from volcanic eruption

A dog that got lost during the volcanic eruption on La Palma was given refreshing water by friendly police officers.

Nemo was separated from its owners after the September 19 explosion in Cumbre Vieja, which spat lava and ash into the sky.

So far, 2,183 buildings and scorched 911.6 hectares of land have been destroyed by the volcano, reported the Copernicus Emergency Management Service.
