02/22/09 Scott Township Firemen Rescue Dog From Pond
Date and Time:
Location: Harlansburg Road, Scott Township, Lawrence County
Firemen again put their lives in danger rescuing an animal, this time a dog. Scott Township firemen arrived on the scene of a dog struggling in the icy waters of a private pond on a farm along Harlansburg Road. The dog, which was about 20 feet from shore, could barely keep his nose above the water. Firemen used a rope and a ladder laid on the ice to reach the dog. When out of the water, the dog was quickly taken away for treatment.
Just in the last month, a horse in Wilmington Township, Lawrence County and one in Shenango Township, Mercer County, had to be rescued from icy waters of private ponds.
