Nurses Rush To Save A Drowning Dog With His Head Stuck Under A Rock

Lady and Reilly had set off on a big doggie adventure without any supervision following a great escape from their yard. It was only after they went missing, that their owner, Jason Norris, realized that there had been a big hole blown into the fence.

A very concerned Norris immediately set out to locate his dogs, when he spotted them strolling along the side of a road nearby to a hospital. When Norris called out, it was Lady who came back, but a naughty Reilly ignored the calls – and this nearly cost the dog its life.

A patient at the Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine first alerted staff to a dog in trouble outside, causing four nurses to quickly rush out to help.

They ran down the railroad track toward the lake, only to find Reilly in trouble.

RN Kara Calor with NLEMMC said, “By the time we got there, we realized he was in the water with his head stuck under a rock. Maybe like 10 minutes maneuvering his head a little bit. He was scared.”

Norris cried being reunited with Reilly. He told the local media that he’d been deployed by the military three times, yet he “can’t remotely thank the lady enough for what she was willing to do to bring my dog back home.”

Besides a few scrapes and one puncture wound on the chest, Reilly is doing fine. Norris has plans to pay the kindness of the nurses forward as a thank you for saving Reilly’s life.
