With fears that the dog’s owner may have previously fallen, the mobile made haste to the scene where the rescue team had assembled, only to find that the animal had fallen over the cliff and was on grassy bank some way down.
A cliff rescue technician was despatched to recover the dog and when the animal was safely on the cliff top and found to be unharmed after its ordeal, it was found to be wearing a collar tag with a telephone number on it. The police contacted the dog’s elderly owner who said that the dog had escaped earlier in the day in Tehidy Woods. They were both reunited within the hour.
As we were re-stowing our rescue equipment, we were then re-tasked to search for a missing adult who was possibly in the area of Godrevy.
We deployed our search teams from Hell’s Mouth and Godrevy and within the hour the person was spotted by one of our search technicians and handed over to the care of the ambulance service. We returned to our station at about half past seven.
