WASHINGTON — It was Lassie, not Timmy, who needed saving from a well Saturday in Anne Arundel County.
Shortly after 11 a.m., an 85-pound collie named “Siri” fell into an old well off Shore Drive in Edgewater, Maryland.
“It was about 8 feet deep and about 2 and a half feet wide. There was mud on the bottom, and she really got stuck in it,” said Jen McKee with Anne Arundel County Fire. “She was so trenched into the muck that they knew that they were going to have to lower somebody down in there,” McKee said.
The fire department’s collapse team was then called out and within minutes, a rescuer was lowered into the hole and came up with what they call a very well behaved victim.
