Dog rescued from 15m Moruya mineshaft

Late Thursday afternoon Jan 3rd, 2019) the Fire and Rescue NSW Station 384 Moruya crew were called to dog rescue down mine shaft. On arrival they learnt that Meggs, the dog, a Blue Heeler pup, had fallen 15m down a mine shaft having left the walking path. Firefighters initially tested the air quality of the mineshaft to ensure it was safe for the SES rescue team to descend.

This is not the first time that this has happened. Last year saw a similar rescue in the same area that is well known for being pockmarked with old vertical tin and silver mine shafts. The dog was successfully rescued from mine shaft and handed back to owners who were very happy to get their uninjured dog back with crews departing the area around 9:45pm
