Watch the dramatic moment a trapped NJ dog was pulled from a pipe
Now you have heard of the dramatic rescue of a foster dog who had been missing for a week in Medford. The whole community was looking for Dylan, an 8-year-old coonhound.
Flyers were hung and calls and texts were received from those who thought they had seen or heard Dylan, according to a post on Patch. A text that was received helped reveal Dylan’s location. He said: “We heard him barking at 11 o’clock this morning.”
The REAL problem was that the barking was coming from an 18 inch storm drain pipe and Dylan was stuck about 150 feet in the pipe for a week.
According to the article, there were several first aid teams on site to assist: Medford Township Public Works and Emergency Medical Technicians; New Jersey State Police, Taunton Fire Company, Southern New Jersey Tracking and Recovery Group, Atlantic City.
The ultimately successful rescue lasted 9 hours and was filmed.
The scene I watched on YouTube reminds me of a story from my youth about 18 month old Jessica McClure being rescued from a 12 inch diameter pit. The story of little Jessica, who was trapped there for 56 hours, made national, if not international, news, and we all watched in amazement and relief as she was rescued.
The moment Dylan was rescued from that gutter is captured on YouTube. Other than a few minor injuries, Dylan is doing very well and is being treated at Mt Laurel Veterinary Hospital.
