South Walton Fire rescuers save dog from a hole
WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - You have heard of firefighters save a cat from a tree, but what about a dog from a hole? South Walton Fire District rescuers did just that on Wednesday.
South Walton Fire District got a call around 3 p.m. of a dog that had fallen in a 15-foot deep hole in Paxton. SWFD’s Squad 3 and District Chief 2 got there and checked the air quality of the confined space with a gas monitor. Once rescuers decided it was safe, firefighters placed a ladder into the hole and attached a rescuer to a safety line.
The firefighter used a ladder to climb down the hole and attached a harness to the dog. Two more firefighters used a safety line to pull them both to safety. They say the dog and rescue team are in good condition. Crews also filled in the hole.
