A MAN has drowned whilst trying to rescue his dogs from drowning in a pond in Huesca, northeast Spain.

Members of the Guardia Civil also found a high visibility jacket and shotgun near the man’s body.

Officers believe the man either fell into the pond while trying to help his animals- who are believed to have access the site through a hole in the fence- or go into the water voluntarily to try to help them to shore.
