A construction crew in Chattanooga put in some overtime Wednesday morning, rescuing a basset hound from the Tennessee River, WTVC reported.

The dog, named Buddy, was trapped in some brush along the banks of the river, the television station reported.

The Hamilton County Special Tactics and Rescue Services team shared two videos on its Facebook page showing Buddy's rescue.

"Buddy, you're a lucky dog today," one worker can be heard saying in the video.
