SUPER=03-Sarnico, Italy;


60 students of the Italian Rescue Dog School showed their stuff at a lake in Northern Italy.
They're members of the only canine helicopter lifesaving unit in Europe.
The dogs are trained to leap from helicopters and tow their human victims to safety by using a special harness on their muzzles.
The founder of the school says dogs make great life-savers because they're naturally strong swimmers.
Graduates of the training school saved ten people from drowning last year. (----------------)
