Raining cats and dogs: Lucky puppy survives 30ft fall through the sky

The fortunate canine had a lucky escape after being grabbed by an eagle-eyed hawk and then flown through the sky as it struggled to escape from its clutches.

He was finally released from the hawk's sharp talons, but was sent plummeting through the sky from over 30ft and into the arms of a loving young boy in Los Banos, California. 

The two-month old nearly didn't survive the fall, but is now making a steady recovery at the home of youngster Taylor Callaway, who explained the moment it landed in his garden: 'All of a sudden I saw this little puppy laying there, he was almost dead.'

Speaking in her back yard, his grandmother Elaine Bouschard added: 'Right here is where Taylor started yelling that he saw the puppy.

'I looked up and the hawk was just flying right here, circling around and at that point, we all just went to the puppy.

'My thought is that when God drops a puppy from the sky, you keep it,' she added.

The family believe the dog may have been a stray picked up from a junkyard because it was covered in grease when they found it.

It has been named TJ Heavenly after its new owner and in honour of its miraculous tale of survival.
