The story of the dog rescued from sea by an oil drilling team become viral. Not surprising, as it is one of the most incredible story I have witnessed whilst working offshore as an onsite Meteorologist. There are a lot of platforms around the area. The two big ones that are close to each other are the production platform and the living quarter platform. The dog truly has a strong survival instinct to choose the living quarter platform where workers use the lower decks to board crew boats that take them to the remote platforms.
It is still unknown on how the dog reached the platform. However, the action taken by the people that rescued the dog and brought it onshore is commendable. (by Aila Aguilar)
