Given the pig’s incredible tale of survival, the family dubbed her "Miracle". A family enjoying the day on their boat in Hawaii was not expecting to be heroes, but life had other plans.
June Mellor and her family were out on a boat near the island of Oahu when they saw something lurking in the ocean. They quickly realized a pig was frantically swimming in the water with no help in sight.
The family initially thought it was a log and were shocked to discover it was a strangled pig. "We were just baffled, looking all around like, ‘Where did you come from?
How did you get out here?’" Mellor told FOX Weather. The rescue operation lasted nearly an hour and ended with Mellor's son grabbing a piece of rope and lassoing it around the helpless animal.
