Jaw-dropping animal rescues by KP Rescue 1122
PESHAWAR: Rescue 1122 Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is giving prompt response to emergency calls, seeking help for rescuing animals caught in trouble, in addition to performing its major responsibility of saving human lives.
“Apart from providing emergency response services for saving human lives, Rescue 1122 is regularly coming to the rescue of animals trapped in dangerous situations,” Dr Khateer Ahmad, Director General of Rescue 1122 KP, said while talking to APP on Friday.
He said in a latest incident, a dog was rescued from a 40-feet well in Karak district while another canine, which had fallen into a 80 feet dry well in Chitral last month, was retrieved by the Rescue 1122 personnel.
The Rescue 1122 Centre in Chitral, he said, was approached by the locals for rescue of the dog trapped in the well. One of the rescuers put his life in danger and descended into the well with the help of a rope to rescue the dog.
He said a critically injured dog, which was hit by a speeding car on the Swabi Road in Mardan district, was given emergency treatment. Even an operation was performed by the rescuers. – APP
