When a security agent refused to jump into a lake to rescue her dog, Brazil's First Lady reportedly jumped in herself fully clothed.
Marcela Temer, a former beauty queen, rescued Picoly, a Jack Russell struggling to swim back to shore April 22, the BBC reported. Brazilian authorities told reporters the security agent was dismissed.
Brazil's President, Michel Temer's family also has a golden retriever named Thor. He is in the middle of a corruption scandal and is being accused of accepting bribes allegedly paid by Rodrimar, a port logistics company, in exchange for concessions.
