The fisherman, Alfonse Attard, and his loyal companion Jack found themselves about a kilometer off Altona Beach when Attard noticed that their fishing boat was taking on water due to a leak. In no time, the boat capsized, and Attard was thrown into the vast ocean. Clinging onto the fishing boat, he hoped for a rescue.

Luck was on their side as two other fishermen, Laurie Borg and his son Trever, spotted Attard in distress. They swiftly came to his aid and brought him safely back to the shore. However, Attard’s relief turned to worry when he realized that his dear companion Jack was still out there, struggling to survive.

Jack had been Attard’s devoted pet for eighteen years, and the thought of losing him was unbearable. Responding to the urgency of the situation, the water police and the Altona Life Saving Club joined the search for the brave little Terrier. They focused their efforts on the capsized boat and, to their astonishment, discovered Jack sitting inside the nose of the boat. It appeared that Jack had managed to find an air pocket and had valiantly held on until the rescue team arrived.

Finally, the volunteers succeeded in bringing Jack to safety, and the emotional reunion with his owner, Attard, was nothing short of heartwarming and bringing tears of joy. Attard couldn’t contain his happiness and celebrated with exuberant jumps of delight.

Reflecting on the incident, Attard believed that the leak had been caused by a loosened plug beneath the boat.
