The incident took place near Malden and EC Row

A local police officer is being hailed as a hero after rescuing a dog that had fallen into a storm sewer.

Police were waved down around 10:30am on Sunday by a woman on trail that runs along EC Row near Malden Road.

Officers were led to a storm sewer with the lid halfway off. The owner of the dog stated that her dog fell in the hole and she had also tripped into the hole but was able to stop herself from falling in.

One of the officers saw the dog approximately 12-15 feet down at the bottom of the storm sewer. The water was up to the dog’s neck and he was shaking and yelping.

It was evident the dog was freezing and in distress, and police say the officer climbed down the ladder into the sewer to rescue the dog.

The officer climbed into the water which was around 3 feet deep and carried the dog out of the storm sewer.

The owner took the dog to a vet as a precaution but there were no injuries.
