Many individuals may be skeptical of miracles. However, one cannot deny that these things happen and they usually happen unexpectedly to those who are already feeling hopeless.
Liza, a senior dog, simply demonstrates to everyone that this is true. This was after the tiny pup spent five days trapped inside a tight rock crack. Liza was completely alone over that period, without any food or water.
Thankfully, she was rescued from that perilous scenario by various rescue crews.
The 12-year-old dog fell into a narrow crack while hiking with her human in an Ulster County state park. The dog’s owner and park workers made every effort to free Liza, but their efforts were fruitless. The park’s personnel sought to monitor the dog’s condition over the next three days by placing a camera inside the cramped enclosure.
Two organizations eventually intervened to save the poor pooch. The New Jersey Initial Response Team (NJIRT) and the Ulster County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (UCSPCA) were among those that got involved.
Two NJIRT personnel, armed with a sophisticated inspection camera, entered the crevice and eventually spotted Liza. Fortunately, the dog was uninjured and was simply standing in one corner of the cramped area.
The volunteers then carefully scooped the dog out of the fissure using a catchpole. When Liza got close enough to the surface, she was swiftly taken by awaiting responders.
Despite the five-day experience, the dog was unharmed. Indeed, it was a miracle.
Gina Carbonari, one of the UCSPCA’s top administrators, said that it was great to see so many people come together to help save the dog. On the other hand, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) used Liza’s story to remind pet owners about safety precautions and park laws, such as leash use.
