Firefighters Lift Dog Stuck At Dam To Safety

Firefighters have rescued a lost dog with a special harness and lift it to safety after it became stuck at a reservoir dam.

The incident occurred when the firefighters received a call alerting them that a dog was trapped at the reservoir in the municipality of l’Alcora, in the eastern Spanish province of Castellon, on Tuesday at around 8 pm.

Castellon firefighters report in a press statement obtained by Newsflash that a team went to the scene where the dog was caught at the reservoir’s dam and could not get out. Two members of the unit then descended down the dam with a special harness for the pooch.

In the video, the firefighters can be seen dropping down and fitting the harness to the grateful dog.

The pet showed no resistance and the firefighters could calmly strap it into the harness before lifting it to safety, as can be seen in the video.

The firefighters confirmed in the press statement that the dog was in a “perfect condition” and the local police helped identify its owner who came to pick it up.

The rescue took around an hour and a half.
