Is it something in UK water that makes them do this ?
No, they are just people who want to help and save lives; be it human or Animal.
Well dome Edale MRT.
From the ‘Metro’, London.
A Labrador stranded in the Peak District has been brought to safety by ‘heroic’ emergency mountain rescue workers.
The 11-year-old dog, named Jess, became unwell during a visit to Fox Hagg Nature Reserve, in the Rivelin Valley of Sheffield.
The difficult terrain meant walker Amyleigh Watts was unable to carry Jess back to the road.
But they made it thanks to the help of Edale Mountain Rescue Team (MRT), called out via South Yorkshire Police around 1.14pm on Thursday.
The kind-hearted crew wrapped the brown Labrador in blankets and carried her back to the car park.
Edale MRT shared the incident on Facebook, saying: ‘A call from South Yorkshire Police to the Fox Hagg area above Rivelin Reservoir.
‘Jess the Labrador has become unwell and was unable to continue her walk.
‘Due to her location and weight, Jess’s walker was unable to carry her back to the road.
‘We were more than happy to assist and a posse of team members were soon on their way to meet up with Jess.
‘After some soothing words from the team’s wannabe Dr Dolittle, Jess was wrapped in a casualty bag and strapped onto a stretcher before being carried out back to the road.’
Ms Watts thanked the team for their assistance, describing their efforts as ‘heroic’.
She said: ‘(Jess) is absolutely fine now, and is having a well-deserved rest on her electric blanket.
‘I’m still recovering, however. You are all heroes, thanks so so so so so much.’
Jess’s owner, Jen, posted on Facebook: ‘Thank you so much Edale Mountain Rescue Team for helping Amyleigh Watts.
‘Jess is my little girl and she is getting old now. She just likes to keep us on our toes.’
Other Facebook users praised the crew for their ‘incredible’ and ‘amazing’ work.

One said: ‘I always worry about being in a similar situation with my dog one day. Well done all.’
Edale MRT operates in the Peak District National Park covering Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.
The charity dealt with more than 150 incidents in 2020, its busiest year since it held its first training exercise in 1956, with team members on call round the clock 365 days a year.
That’s what I love about being British;
all sentient beings (human or animal) with feelings sometimes requiring assistance.
