Cork City Fire Brigade have been commended for their ‘pawsome river rescue’ following their rescuing of a dog from the river Lee.
The small terrier found herself in trouble late Sunday night, May 7, as it fell into the water near Camden Quay.
Passers-by alerted the emergency services when the dog’s cries could be heard coming from the river.
Cork City Brigade were quick to respond to concerns from the public and swiftly set about to retrieve the distressed animal.
Members of the rescue team lowered a fireman on a stretcher down into the water from the quay above and successfully hoisted the small dog to safety.
The Cork City Fire Brigade took to social media to share the news of their successful canine rescue, saying:
This most recent rescue by the fire service is among a string of successful missions to retrieve endangered animals in Cork.
