Dog escapes at Newark airport, rescued from mud in nearby swamp by Port Authority police

A dog is on his way to Asia after police rescued it from a swamp following its escape from New Jersey's Newark International Airport.



The collie named Dart got out of United Airlines' pet safe in Terminal C on Monday morning and threaded through traffic and several parking lots before ending up stuck in the mud in a swamp.



Port Authority police used a rowboat and snare to reach the dog. Dart was not injured during the 45-minute rescue.



Dart was cleaned up and reunited with his owner to make his flight. Travel was not affected.
