It was possible to call another brigade, but they would not have made it in time.
Jake Atkins went hunting with his friend. They hid, waiting for their prey, but that day they were unlucky. The guys came closer to the water …
But Jake got into the swamp and fell into liquid dirt. He could not get out on his own. His friend tried to help but was also stuck in a swamp.
They scored 911 and began to wait for rescuers.
But, as soon as they arrived, it turned out … Rescuers could not get to them! To save them, the team would also have to enter the swamp, and this was a huge risk.
One could call another brigade, but they certainly would not have time. And then Jake came up with a good idea. His dog is Otis! Rescuers tied the rope to her collar and let the dog go to the owner.
The dog walked slowly and very carefully. It seemed that the dog could choose a path that rescuers would not notice.
«Otis helped us! He brought a rope and helped to pull me out and my friend. That was incredible!» Jake says.
The dog was very tired but was happy that again next to the owner.
