Christians all around the world are ringing in their celebrations of Easter Sunday. In all the joy and happiness commemorating the resurrection of Lord Jesus, the internet also has a lovely story about a dog named Jesus who was saved on the day of Good Friday in Birmingham. The lovely coincidence is not going unnoticed and indeed giving more joy to everyone on Twitter. A four-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier-mix named Jesus was drowning into the lake in Sutton Park. Firefighters were called in for rescues who successfully took the dog out from the water. It happened on Good Friday, the same day on which Lord Jesus was crucified.

The people around were contemplating to jump in the water to get the dog. "The dog had been in the lake for about 30 minutes and was going underneath the water and reappearing, so a decision was made to get a firefighter into the water to retrieve him. The rescue only took five minutes but the owners were overjoyed to have him back," the watch commander Nigel Cox told a news report. Since the joyous news was shared on Twitter, people on social media definitely did not miss the coincidence.
