In Arizona, a woman was stranded for 18 hours in a canal. This wasn’t because she wanted to take an adventure of a lifetime, no. This was because she was holding onto her small do for dear life. She was trying to rescue the pooch who had fallen into the canal.
This certainly takes dog mom responsibility to a whole new level. The woman clung to the tree for 18 hours, refusing to just let go or even let go of her 55-pound dog.
Family is family, right?!
The police finally arrived about 18 hours later and did their best to try to help get the pet and human to safety. They were able to pull both of them out of the canal and back to a safe area.
The authorities had been notified by a local train conductor who happened to see the woman and her dog. While this was the 8th train that had gone by, thankfully the conductor was aware enough of their surroundings to see the woman clinging to the tree for dear life and call authorities for help.
That’s not to say anything negative about the previous 7 trains that had gone by, as trains do travel pretty fast. This woman and her dog were lucky that the 8th train just happened to see her and help be part of her beautiful store of this Arizona woman who tries to save her dog from being whisked away in the canal.
Once they were able to get the woman and her dog out of the water, the damage to her body certainly showed a fight. She was exhausted and couldn’t stand on her two feet. She told authorities that she was simply ready to let go because it was just so long after 18 hours that she felt it was time to give up.
That is until she heard the sirens wailing. Once she heard the sirens, she had a new sense of hope and strength. She held on until the authorities got there, but she completely let go once she was saved, thus not being able to stand upright immediately after the brave authorities saved her and her dog.
The incident occurred because this Arizona woman was working in this region of the local town, and allowed her dog to free roam while she worked. Sadly, the dog ended up getting too close to the canal and anciently fell in.
While the woman didn’t sustain any major injuries, she sure was shaken up and of course, exhausted, and is now resting at home healing with her beloved dog.
