FCSO Deputy Rescues Dog That Fell Into Hole In Septic Tank At Palm Coast Home

By on December 27, 2017 in WNDB News


Palm Coast, FL – A Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputy rescued a Jack Russell Terrier that fell into the opening of a septic tank at a home in Palm Coast last week.

Deputy Edward Faircloth responded to a home at 6 Point Pleasant Dr. in Palm Coast on December 19 at around 7:27 PM. The female owner of the dog reported that the dog had been missing for several hours, and she said she heard the dog whimpering from a hole leading to the septic tank on the property. The hole was approximately three feet deep, according to FCSO.

The dog was struggling to stay above the sewage in the tank, and Faircloth lied down on the ground and was able to grab hold of the dog and lift it out of the hole.

FCSO says the dog had no injuries, and the Palm Coast Public Works Department will be called to fix the hole in the septic tank.
