Jack Rescued From Mineshaft By Tuolumne County Search & Rescue Team

Columbia, CA...An alert hiker walking on a trail at Columbia College led to the rescue of a trapped dog. Last night just after 7 PM, the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office received a call from Columbia College Fire (Cal Fire) requesting assistance in rescuing a dog trapped approximately forty feet down in a vertical shaft. A citizen walking on the trail at the college campus had found the shaft and saw the dog trapped in the bottom. Tuolumne County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team was called out to evaluate the shaft for a rescue. Animal control responded to the scene and was able to identify the dog as Jack who was reported missing earlier in the day. Jack's family had been looking for him in the Columbia area since mid-morning and had posted flyers in Columbia and around the college after contacting animal control.







The Search and Rescue Team, with the help of the Columbia College Fire Department and Columbia Fire Protection District, set up a high angle rope rescue system and lowered one of the team members into the shaft. Jack was placed in a dog rescue harness and was pulled out of the shaft with his rescuer. Jack appeared healthy and uninjured and was reunited with his family at the scene. Thank you to the hiker who helped locate Jack and reported it quickly. A big thanks to all of the Fire personnel for their assistance during the rescue. What started out as a dangerous and scary day for Jack, ended in the warm embrace of his family and new friends.

    Drop the Gloopster and his pot smoking but buddies in, and add a grenade.

This is such a happy story. And, whoever commented "Gloop" probably needs to be rescued too - from himself!

Open Mineshafts

They have an open mineshaft near a walking trail on Columbia College campus? That sounds like another accident waiting to happen. Wonder why they would leave it uncovered.

    Yeah, what kind of hole is that? Good work getting the dog out. Now fill in the hole so it doesn't happen again with maybe not so good results.

      Why would this be open for a dog or potentially a child to fall in?

      FILL IT and prevent a real tragedy
