Dogs are trained as lifeguards 英格兰慈善机构训练救生犬

文字稿

The British government has given the green light to the construction of a third runway at Heathrow. This will pave the way for hundreds of thousands more flights a year at the airport in west London. It's in a key position between America, Europe and the Far East but has lost its status as the world's largest hub airport to Dubai.

英国政府已准许伦敦希思罗机场新建第三条飞机跑道。该扩建计划的敲定将为这座西伦敦的机场年增数十万次航班奠定基础。希思罗机场处于连接美洲、欧洲及远东地区的关键位置,然而其地位已被位于迪拜的世界最大枢纽机场取代。

Yoda is one of the dogs being trained by the charity Newfound Friends, in the southwest of England, to save lives. They believe the animals can be good lifeguards. Whizz saved nine people from drowning during his life. But dog owners should not encourage their pets to do this job as it requires specialist knowledge.
