Dog Falls 16 stories and survives!
Susie who is a 4 year old crossbreed recently survived a fall from the 16th floor of a high rise apartment building in Florida. She was visiting with her 68 year old owner Elaine Caralis and on entering the apartment she got hold of a scent that led her to an open closet. Susie walked into the closet and found an open ventilation panel which she stepped into.
Unbeknown to her, this led to a shaft, straight down and she tumbled 16 floors. Emergency responders were called from the Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue who had to cut above and below the 2nd floor in order to reach her.
The fire crew had to work for hours before being able to reach the animal and the owner feared the worse. When she was eventually freed she was immediately taken to Oakland Park Animal Hospital and the attending veterinarian expected severe injuries and multiple fractures however to everybody’s surprise Susie had escaped any serious injury and just had bruising.
Susie is expected to make a full recovery.
