A woman walking her dog on the grounds of the Ambulance Service of New South Wales (NSW), Australia, headquarters drew the attention of staff when her 15-year-old dog, Lucky, fell more than five meters (16.4 feet) down a drain hole, according to the agency’s Facebook page.
Three paramedics keen to help got the necessary equipment and went about extricating Lucky.
For safety reasons they had to test the hole for gas levels, while one of the paramedics, Andy, wearing an oxygen mask, retrieved Lucky.
Lucky, living up to his name, was brought to the surface with no injuries other than a few bruises.
LAS calltaker goes the extra mile for NHS charities.
