Tuna can be found underwater, This tuna is not a fish — As the Miami Beach firefighter who saved her might tell you.
On Sunday morning, Amandine Lorenzo was playing with tuna on a small dog run on West 23rd Street past North Bay Road in Miami Beach. It was the first time for both pets and their owners.
Lorenzo adopted a hilarious American Bulldog / Staffordshire Terrier mix from a county animal shelter in Doral about a year and a half ago. According to Lorenzo, on Sunday, the brindle-colored dog wore a vest that said, “Don’t keep pets,” because it’s training and full of energy.
She told the Miami Herald that everything was fine until the three-year-old pouch unexpectedly fell straight about six feet straight to Sunset Lake. The lake is near the Sunset Islands and near the Bayshore Golf Course.
“She approached the seawall to see the water. When I told her to get off, she turned around, but lost her balance and collapsed,” Lorenzo said in Spanish.
Lorenzo rushed to the street and asked for help, but she said no one was there.
Residents of South Beach called 911 because they couldn’t find a way to raise or withdraw £ 50.
“I was embarrassed to call 911, but I had no other choice,” said 30-year-old Lorenzo.
In a video posted on Twitter by the Miami Beach Fire Department, two firefighters use a roof ladder to descend into the bay and save tuna. In the video, you can see the tuna snuggling up on the shoulders of a firefighter.

The firefighter stepped back and laughed.
“The team of firefighters was great,” Lorenzo said.
She said authorities should fence the area or at least install warning signs.
“If a dog or child falls into the bay, there is no easy way to get off to save them,” Lorenzo said.
