Talk about being in the right place at the right time! Our bridge inspection crew was working over the Mississippi River this weekend when bridge inspector Craig Jenkins noticed a stranded dog beneath the bridge deck, 120ft above the river. Ryan Nataluk, lead climber and rescue technician for the team, quickly called the police for assistance and climbed down to the dog. After assessing her for injuries and fashioning a makeshift harness for the dog out of rope, Ryan lifted her to safety. No one is sure how she ended up down there, but this heartwarming rescue story proves that not all heroes wear capes!
Miracle, the animal got away without the slightest scratch. She is even in great shape and wags her tail to thank her rescuers. They notified the police who announced some time later that the dog had been adopted. “She was very lucky. I hope her new masters named her Lucky,” Police Chief Walter Armstrong said.
