Stop in the name of the paw! Police officer becomes an internet hero after crossing five lanes of traffic to rescue a stranded puppy

 This is the incredible moment when a Peruvian police officer crosses five lanes of busy traffic to rescue a stranded puppy.

Juan Manuel Iman Zena, 34, had spotted the terrified young dog on the busy Panamericana Sur, in the Peruvian capital Lima.

Concerned about its welfare, and fearing it could cause a major accident, the brave officer took his life in his hands as he strode out onto the highway, ordering traffic to stop, to pick up the puppy.

The video shows him starting to wave down traffic before eventually crossing the highway and slowly approaching the puppy. He then grabs the dog by the scruff of the neck and carries it back to the safety of his motorbike.

There he puts the animal on a makeshift lead and checks the collar to help track down the owners. On the video a child can also be heard saying excitedly: 'He saved it.'
