A sea of brown foam formed by the torrential flood that encircles the east coast of Australia swallowed a dog on Monday until its owner miraculously found it.
As local outlet 7 News reported, about two hours after Brookbane was caught at the Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast south of Brisbane, the puppy’s owner was caught wiring a dramatic video.
The “Walnut! Hazel” woman, wearing a white bathing suit, searches through the screaming brown bubbles that were as high as her chest, the video shows.
Shortly thereafter, the puppy emerged and was safely scooped into his mother’s arms and taken to safety, the clip shows.
The BBC reported that severe rains and high tides triggered more than 600 miles of Australia’s east coast.
The beaches surrounding Byron Bay are a popular tourist destination, but all have disappeared, local mayor Simon Richardson told the outlet.
The outlet reported that more than 2,000 homes had lost electricity and recorded elevations of up to 26 feet.
The bizarre sea foam caught in the clip is created when impurities such as salt, natural chemicals and dead plants are churned together by powerful waves, turning the water into thick, brown bubbles, the Norther star. Told earlier.
