Firefighters Save Dog in Daring Mine Shaft Rescue

Bailey and her owner were hiking in the Roxborough area of Lakewood, Colorado when the dog fell more than 200 feet into an old clay mine.

A team of technical specialists from West Metro Fire Rescue performed the dangerous, steep rescue, lowering two crew members into the mine shaft and using a winch to lift Bailey safely back into the arms of a very grateful owner.

The rescue took crew members more than 3 hours, during which the family had little hope their dog had survived.

Not only did Bailey survive the ordeal, she suffered absolutely no broken bones and is doing perfectly!
