Kewanee Fire Dept Rescued a Dog from a Well This Morning


The Kewanee Fire Department used their rope certification skills to rescue a dog that had fallen into a cistern this morning. The Kewanee Fire Department posted the rescue on their Facebook page and said they responded to a call for a dog in a well. Crews arrived to find a cold but friendly dog in a cistern. KFD used their “technical rescue and rope certifications” to rescue Gypsy from the cold water. “Crews used rope and a ladder to get the very thankful pup out of the water and onto warm ground.” Excellent job Kewanee Fire Dept!

Update:  see picture below of Kewanee Firefighters with the dog they saved, 2-year-old Gypsy.  The cover over the cistern failed and Gypsy fell in.  The owner said the cistern will be covered back up so Gypsy, or anyone else, falls in.  Excellent work Anthony Rushing for going down the small well and rescue a four-legged friend.
