A stray dog from Malaysia’s Tanjung Bungah fell down a 100-foot-deep ravine and was unable to escape. The heavy rainfall rendered the nearby rocks extremely slippery. Every time he attempted to ascend, he would fall back down. As he does not have an owner, there was no one to search for the dog.
Fortunately, though, several inhabitants of that suburb saw him and his plight. Instead of disregarding his situation, they called the local fire department for assistance.
After receiving the call, the Bagan Jermal Fire and Rescue Department immediately assembled a rescue team and dispatched them. The team consisted of 10 responders who instantly assessed the situation. They determined that employing a pulley system to extract the dog is the most efficient and secure method.
They took out their equipment and put it together. They had to ensure that it was stable and well-constructed. One misstep could cause them to slip and fall.
Two brave firefighters dropped slowly and secured the stray dog. They placed the animal in a harness, and the rest of the crew dragged them to safe ground.
The rescue operation took nearly three hours long. The responders were responsible for ensuring everyone’s safety, including the dog in need of help and the responders themselves.
Pictures of the courageous rescue were shared online, and a large number of individuals praised the firefighters for their bravery. Even though he was a stray, the rescuers’ efforts to save the dog were praised by some as commendable. And despite being considered animals, they have precious lives as well.
Residents of Malaysia praised the rescue team for demonstrating humanity and expressing their pride in them. Their efforts showed their utmost commitment to their jobs, whether serving humans or even animals.
Good job to the entire team! May you continue to be safe to help more humans and animals in need.
