Watch: Extraordinary moment digger plucks cow from raging floodwater

A Turkish digger operator showed immense skill to scoop a hapless cow from a fast-flowing irrigation canal.

Two cattle had fallen into the water in the eastern province of Igdir after a long day of heavy rain. The first was rescued by villagers, but the second had to endure an involuntary two-mile journey through the floodwater.

The digger operator waited for the cow to float past before timing the scoop to perfection and lifting it to safety on the nearby bank.

The cow flopped out of the bucket ungracefully but otherwise appeared uninjured – if a little damp.
