EMERGENCY services were called to Stanwell Park this afternoon where a dog had reportedly fallen from a cliff onto rocks, north of the beach.
Illawarra Police Rescue and NSW SES Wollongong City Unit were called out to what was thought to be a vertical rescue, however that changed with the incoming tide making the rescue more urgent.
Police Rescue reported that a new outside the square plan was hatched, with the assistance of Wollongong City Council Lifeguards, members of Helensburgh-Stanwell Park Surf Life Saving Club, and a dedicated vet nurse.
Remi the labrador-cross had fallen five metres over the cliff, and injured her front legs. Unable to walk, she was sedated by a veterinarian nurse before she was ferried by IRB to her waiting owners at Stanwell Park Beach, and taken to a veterinarian clinic for treatment.
