NORTH CAROLINA -- CFD C-shifters handle a "unique" call for service.
On the evening of May 1, 2017, CFD was dispatched to an animal rescue, dog stuck in the river.
Upon arrival, CFD personnel found a German Shepherd dog (Jack), approximately 10 feet down an embankment, tangled in vines.
The area of water was a calm eddie pool on the side of the river where it connects to a creek where Jack's owner was letting him and their other dog enjoy a swim in the creek area.
CFD personnel made quick work by lowering Engineer Bryan Belvin down the little embankment where he was able to cut away the vines that had wrapped around Jacks legs and tail area, and then was raised up to pass Jack up the embankment.
Great job by all!
