Hyderabad: A stray dog which fell into a 30-metre dry well in Lower Tank Bund area was rescued by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation officials on Saturday. The Civic body’s Disaster Response Force (DRF) saved the dog after the local residents informed the officials about the incident.
The DRF men who reached the spot entered the well and pulled the dog out with the help of a rope.
The residents told the officials that the dog was stuck in the well for two days without any food and water. “We heard the sound of a dog but we couldn't locate where it was coming from. On the next day, a few residents who were passing by the well saw it and immediately informed the GHMC officials,” said one of the residents.
The local residents requested the GHMC officials to cover such unused wells in the locality as they were dangerous not only for stray animals, but also humans.
A GHMC official said, “The DRF has been working very efficiently since its establishment. It is an initiative of the state government and the members are trained to deal with flood, building collapse and several other emergency situations.”...
