Dog Rescued from River
Firefighters were called out to rescue a dog from fast - flowing water in the River Alt close to the East Lancs Road in Liverpool in February.
One fire engine from Croxteth Community Fire Station attended the incident, which happened near the Vikings Landing pub, together with the Search and Rescue Team.
Crews used rope access gear and a triple extension ladder to rescue the five-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier dog after she found her way in to the water way and couldn’t get out.
Firefighters returned the female dog, who was unharmed, to her owner. They remained at the scene for around half an hour.
Watch Manager John O’Boyle, who attended the scene, said: “The dog had found her way in to the water and she couldn’t get herself out.
“Her concerned owner rang us because the water was fast-flowing and the dog was tired, cold and needed rescuing.
“We used rope access gear and a triple extension ladder to bring her to safety. She was safely reunited with her owner, cold but unharmed.”

Firefighters were called to assist a heavy goods vehicle that had overturned on the East Lancs Road in Kirkby in February.
