An underwater search and rescue company is today training dogs to detect bodies in the water.
The dogs are able to detect the scent of a drowning victim even at great depths.
Sarbot has traditionally used sonar equipment and robots to rescue drowning victims or recover bodies, as in the case of Dylan Cecil from Northamptonshire, who was blown off a pier while on holiday.
If a body can be brought to the surface within 90 minutes, they can generally survive with no lasting injuries.
The company hope to have a dog permanently based in the East Midlands.

A goat at a farm in Nottinghamshire has adopted two lambs who were rejected by their mother three weeks ago.
The lambs, who really were the black sheep of the family, were born nearly three weeks ago at White Post Farm in Farnsfield. They've now been taken into the care of Geraldine the Golden Guernsey goat.
The farm has launched a Facebook page inviting visitors to suggest names for the lambs.
Anthony Moore, one of the managers at the farm, said: "We were worried because the first few days are critical as the lambs need nutrients from their mother's milk. Luckily Geraldine was more than happy to adopt and feed them.
"She had a male kid earlier this year so is no stranger to motherhood," added Anthony Moore.
