A helpless dog is saved from the River Bosnia following the worst floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina in a century

A video has emerged from flood-hit Bosnia and Herzegovina showing a dog being rescued from a swollen river in the city of Zenica on Thursday.

A crowd of men attempted to reach the dog as it struggled over mounds of rubbish caught up on the banks of the river, before one of them managed to pull it out by the scruff of its neck.

In the past week, Bosnia and Serbia have been hit by the heaviest rain and floods in the past 120 years with the governments declaring a state of emergency in many towns and cities.

Army helicopters have been sent to evacuate thousands of stranded residents but reports say bad weather is hampering the rescue efforts.

In Bosnia, army helicopters have been trying to rescue residents, some of whom have been sitting on their roofs waiting for help.

But reports say strong wind and rain may be hampering the efforts.
