A blind and deaf senior dog named Miss Daisy Mae happened to fall into a storm drain when she stumbled out of her house. Her owners, Sharon and Michael McClintock, were extremely worried and didn’t know what to do. But thankfully, they had to worry no more when Miss Daisy Mae’s heroes came to the rescue.
It all happened on the day the McClintock couple had some workers come over to their house to repair their floor. When the workers arrived, the couple forgot to close the door behind them and out went Miss Daisy Mae. This led to the fifteen-year-old dog wandering about and falling into the storm drain.
When the McClintock couple found out what had happened to their pup, they immediately called for help. Michael related to ABC 4 News that he felt like his stomach turned upside down when he learned his dog fell in the drain. He feared that her fall must have broken her neck and that she was lying down dead on the drain.
The couple felt very troubled as they waited for help and could not help but cry when two officers arrived at their place. Officer Lekamp, who grew up with dogs in his family, said that he understood what Miss Daisy Mae meant to the couple. He knew that she wasn’t just a dog to them but a beloved member of the family.
The two officers immediately got to work and pushed the drain’s cover aside. When they looked inside, they saw footprints on the floor, which meant that the dog survived the fall. After they confirmed that the footprints were from Miss Daisy Mae, officer Jost went inside the drain.
The officer had to lay down on the muddy floor to find the dog. He soon found Miss Daisy Mae 14 feet in the tunnel. He then used an improvised lasso he had made to pull the pup out. Miss Daisy Mae must have felt very happy when she realized that she was being rescued.
When Sharon and Michael McClintock saw officer Jost climb out from the drain with their dog safely in his arms, they burst out with tears of joy. They felt so relieved and happy to have Miss Daisy Mae back. The heroic actions of these two officers were broadcasted in the news, and even the police major commended them for their actions. Thanks to officers Jost and Lekamp, a dog has been saved.
