Swiss Dachshund Plunges 800 Feet Off Mountain; Rescued By Helicopter
Monte Generoso, falling some 250 meters, or about 820 feet! His human was able to contact authorities to secure a helicopter that came to Luce's rescue. "His large dark eyes looked at me gratefully," noted his mountain rescuer. Surprisingly he was not hurt too bad, suffering a cut to the head, but otherwise fine. The helicopter rescue will cost several thousand francs, but "Luce is worth it" said Ms. Staub. Source.
