Lucky dog miraculously escapes death after falling from 30ft drop down waterfall

A puppy miraculously managed to escape death after falling 30 feet down a waterfall.

The lucky dog survived with just a fractured leg and was saved by a rescue team.

Alfie is a German Pointer who took a tumble off a waterfall on August 3rd at Sgwd y Pannwr waterfall, to the horror of many bystanders.

The incident occurred at Brecon Beacons National Park, in south Wales, after which a mountain rescue team was summoned.

With the help of Alfie's owners, they eventually discovered him and helped recover the dog back to the footpath.

The lucky pooch was put onto a stretcher and taken to a vet, where they found that Alfie had fractured his leg in two places., TeamDogs reports.

The Central Brecons MRT wrote on Facebook: "We’re grateful to a large group of passers-by who helped the owners recover Alfie, a German Pointer, to the footpath.

“Sadly, poor Alfie was in too much pain to walk or be carried to the car park, so was treated to a very gentle lift onto one of our stretchers and carefully carried to vehicle transport to a local vets.

“Later in the evening, Alfie’s owners contacted us to say he has fractured his leg in two places and will be operated on but is expected to make a good recovery.”
