Watch: Firefighters Rescue Visually Impaired Dog After Falling At A Construction Site

The video shared on Facebook shows how a visually-impaired dog got rescued after falling into a construction site.

California: Firefighters jumped to save a visually impaired dog that escaped from its human’s yard and fell into a 15-foot-deep hole at a nearby construction site. 13 years old dog named Caesar ran through a gap in the fence of its human, who lives near the building site.

A rescuer was dropped into the 3-foot-wide hole by firefighters using a system of cables and pulleys. Around 7 p.m. Tuesday, Caesar fell into the hole, about 15 feet deep and 3 feet wide. It took the crew member about 12 minutes to reach the dog, secure him in a harness and get him back to the surface. At the site, the dog was reunited with its beloved human and did not seem hurt.

The caption reads, “Successful dog rescue: Last night, our personnel performed a Technical Rescue of a blind canine who fell approximately 15 feet into a hole at a construction site. The canine was extricated in roughly 13 minutes. After the rescue, the canine was assessed, determined to be uninjured, and returned to the owner. Special thanks to Arcadia, South Pasadena, and Glendale Fire, who assisted.”
