As emergency crews across Spain have been kept busy during this busy holiday period, one crew from Valencia performed a miracle rescue this week, at a finca in the town of Ontinyent.

The crew were called to rescue two dogs that had fallen into a twelve metre deep pit at the Casa de Chots finca, late in the evening.

In a two and a half hour operation that finished just before midnight the crew tirelessly tried to keep the terrified dogs calm, before using ropes to extract them.

One of the dogs was rescued using a bucket method on the rope pulley, but the second dog was too big for this procedure, and so one of the fire fighters was lowered down into the hole, and lifted him out by hand, as he and the dog were winched up together.

The dogs were both in good health, no doubt relieved that their ordeal was over, and were left in the care of volunteers at an animal rescue centre, who were also present in the rescue, until a permanent home can be found.
