Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. And for a distressed dog stuck inside a deep well in Mangaluru, it came in the form of a woman.
Rajani Shetty from Mangaluru went viral on Twitter recently after a video of her climbing down a deep well to rescue a dog surfaced.
In the video, Rajani can be seen descending down the well's shaft with a rope tied around her waist while the other end is fastened outside the well. She can be seen slowly lowering herself to where the stray dog was stuck and then stretching sideways to get her hands on the canine.

Once the dog was within reach, she tied one end of another rope, fastened outside the well, and lassoed it around the dog's neck. the canine was thus pulled out using the rope.
