PICTURES: Dramatic rescue of lucky dog after cliff leap
The Coastguard and Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service were this weekend called to rescue a dog on the cliff behind Mussenden Temple.
Dog owner Maria was out walking her two-year-old dog - Rhea - when she jumped up onto the wall and fell over the back of the wall at the temple.
The dog fell aproximately 20ft down and landed on a ledge.
After Maria called 999 emergency teams were alerted.
On arrival Coastguard teams established the safest and easiest way to retreive the dog safely was by means of a rope rescue. Cliff technicians descended the cliff face to retrieve the dog to its waiting, thankful owner.
