Police in England have warned residents not to leave dogs in hot cars after an officer had to smash a car window to get to a shih tzu in distress in Nottingham on Monday, August 8.Body camera footage shows police coming to the dog’s aid on the 81-degree day, and rushing the animal to the vet.“The small black shih tzu was barking and panting inside a locked car,” Nottinghamshire Police said in a statement. "The windows were left slightly open but it was not enough to prevent the dog collapsing.“Thankfully, police arrived just in time to save his life,” the department said. “They smashed the car’s window, gave him water and rushed him to a local vet in the back of a police car.”The dog’s body temperature reached 102.4 degrees Fahrenheit (39.1 Celsius) but the canine was “making a good recovery,” police said.A heat-health alert due to high temperatures was extended for another week on Friday.

An Australian fishing boat sailing in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory, spotted a large container of unknown origin floating in the water on August 4.In footage recorded by Bruce Davey, the container can be seen bobbing up and down in the water. “Holy shiver me timbers,” he can be heard saying at one point, as the crew grabs a closer look.Northern Territory Infrastructure, Planning, and Logistics issued a marine navigation warning on Facebook on August 5, urging nearby vessels to “proceed with caution” around the “large floating container”.The area is a “hotspot for debris,” according to a spokesperson for the Australian Marine Conservation Society.Davey and the crew of his ship, named Wildcard, spotted the object as they were fishing for mackerel off Groote Eylandt, in the Northern Territory. A member dived into the water for a closer inspection. However, Davey said they were unable to open a hatch on the object.In the video, a female member of the crew can be heard saying that they were lucky “it wasn’t nighttime, we would have smashed into it.”The container, estimated to be of “about five meters by three meters by four meters” by Davey, was too large for the fishing boat to tow to safety.A Northern Territory Marine Safety statement noted though that the Wildcard crew had placed a marker buoy on the container to improve visibility for mariners.Storyful contacted Northern Territory Marine Safety for an update on the container, but no further comment was available at the time of writing.
