Before descending 6 meters underground to save a doggie, firefighters take special precautions (video)
On Wednesday, February 9, firefighters in Paxton, Florida were alerted to save a dog in an emergency situation.
A poor dog had fallen into a hole 6 meters deep.
They have to test the air quality
Before they could go inside to help the dog, firefighters had to test the air quality first. This was a necessary precaution for the safety of the intervention.
Then they placed the big ladder inside to climb down and rescue the poor dog.
Once underground, one of the firefighters approached the doggie who turned out to be a very friendly female! The rescuer then used a strap to make a safety harness and be able to raise the doggie in the open air.
An exemplary rescue
On the video posted by the firefighters on Facebook, we can even hear the firefighters encouraging and reassuring the dog: “Come on, my daughter. Come on, sweetie! as they lift her to the surface.
The brave dog was “in good condition and did not appear to be injured” according to the firefighters’ social media post.
No one knows how the dog got stuck in this deep hole.
Workers from Walton County Animal Control and Walton County Works also came to the scene to examine the animal and seal the hole.
