The 3-year-old Golden Retriever named Marley went out on a hike with his human at Red Rock, located in Sutton, Ireland. Unfortunately, the dog slipped near the cliff’s summit and got trapped in the mountainside filled with rocks and weeds.
Since Marley’s human did not have any idea how to help or check up on his dog, he immediately contacted the Irish Coast Guard Operations Center for help. Luckily, the coast guard response team from Howth Station were nearby and responded to the distress call.
When the Dublin Fire Brigade heard about Marley’s urgent situation, they teamed up with the Irish coast guard to assist in rescuing the dog. The brave firemen stood by the scene in case the coast guard needed extra help.
Upon the coast guards’ arrival, they went to the top of the cliff to meet Marley’s human. The owner told the rescue team that Marley accidentally slipped while he was near the edge of the cliff and fell for about 15 feet down the mountain.
In the video, the coast guard climber secured himself first before going down to the dog’s location. Soon after, the climber was lowered down for over 10 feet to reach the trapped dog.
The steep mountain somehow made it difficult to rescue the dog, but with the rescuers’ team effort, the climber got to the dog in the nick of time. Marley was evidently thirsty due to heat and stress that when the man gave him a bottle of water, he quickly drank it.
As soon the climber managed to secure Marley’s safety, the coast guard team lowered the two down the beach where the dog finally reunited with his grateful owner. When Marley walked towards his fur-mom, she wrapped Marley in a tight embrace.
