Coastguards rescue dog from Dublin cliff
A team of rescue workers went to great lengths to save a dog who had become trapped half way down a cliff.
A video was taken at Red Rock in Sutton, where the dog had become stranded 15ft down the cliff.
Marley, a three-year-old golden retriever had become trapped after slipping down the cliff edge.
The video sees a coastguard climber lower himself to towards Marley, who is taking shelter in some shrubs.
The rescue worker gives Marley a pat on the head and speaks to the dog in reassuring tones before giving him a drink of water.
He then secured Marley and continued to descend towards the beach where the dog’s worried owner was waiting.
Take a look at the video below.
The coastguard team also saved another dog, who had swam out to sea at Bull Wall on Dollymount but had become stranded an unable to make it back to land.
A Dublin Port boat helped with the rescue and brought the dog safely back to shore.
