Dog rescues 2 from rip current in California

"Good dog," is an understatement when you're talking about this heroic pooch in California.

Nico the Bernese mountain dog saved the lives of two swimmers caught in a rip current at a Ventura, Calif. beach.

The man and woman yelled for help, and Nico splashed right in, dragging them back to safety.

The grateful swimmers asked if Nico was trained as a rescue dog. His owners say no, they've never seen him do anything like it.
