Our fabulous team recently put their water safety qualifications into good practise and rescued cheeky chocolate lab Chester from deep waters much to the delight of his owner! Whilst out delivering our Environment Agency “walkthroughs” contract clearing waterways of debris and blockages in Yorkshire, RSC staff came across a dog in need.
Owner Kim stated “Chester & I were walking along the Trans Pennine Trail near CortonWood when he decided he would go into the stream! The area is unfamiliar to him & he thought he could get out of the stream a little further down. However, he managed to get himself stuck on a ledge! I was just about to jump in myself to try and get him down but luckily the River Stewards arrived just in time & sprung into action. They went down into the stream and picked Chester up & helped him to safety!cannot tha Thank God they were there, I really don’t know what would have happened if they weren’t! True superheroes saved the day! We both cannot thank them all enough! Amazing!”
We are glad to since learn Chester has fully recovered from his dip! All in a day’s work.
