Fire Brigade called to rescue man who jumped into Lee to rescue dog

Cork City Fire Brigade responded to call out down the Marina this evening when emergency services were requested after a man jumped into the River Lee to save his dog.

The man was seen jumping into the river down by the Lee Rowing Club around 5pm in order to save his dog who had gone into the water.

Onlookers called the emergency services and an ambulance and fire truck were sent to the scene.

Thankfully, both man and dog, made it out of the water unscathed and by the time the fire brigade arrived, the pair were just getting out of the water together.

After a quick check by the ambulance, the pair were free to go on their way as the man was without injury and seemed satisfied his dog was safe and well.

Two units of the Cork City Fire Brigade attended the scene and they were there for 25 minutes before returning to the station.
