Dog falls off cliff, rescued by Sheboygan Fire Department

SHEBOYGAN -- Sheboygan firefighters rescued a dog that had fallen over a cliff at Jaycee Quarry View Park on Tuesday evening, November 15th

Emergency responders were dispatched to the park just after 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday -- they received a call stating that a dog fell over a cliff at the quarry and was trapped in the water.

As the City of Sheboygan Fire Department arrived, they located the owner and the dog along a path on the south end of the quarry. The dog had fallen off of a ten-foot cliff, landed in the water, but was trapped on the cliff’s ledge near the water line.

Although there was heavy brush blocking the way, a firefighter was lowered to the ledge using a rope and harness. At the same time, the Town of Sheboygan Fire Department used an all-terrain vehicle to assist the Kohler Fire Department in getting their boat launched from the beach.  As the boat reached the area where the dog fell in, the city firefighter was waiting, holding the dog in his arms.

The firefighter and dog were both assisted into the boat and taken back to the beach launch area.

The dog, Lacy, was cold and wet, but uninjured.
