A small dog falls 7 meters into a crevasse. Scared, its owner calls for help

A man will never forget the sight of his dog, Harley, sinking into the abyss. The animal got stuck 7 meters deep in a crevasse in Nanaimo, a municipality in British Columbia.

Dale Rahim was leisurely walking his little 4-legged companion on a leash on the popular Extension Ridge Trail on Tuesday, July 20, when the tragedy happened.

The leash slipped out of his hands, allowing the animal to venture a little too far. Harley accidentally dove into the half-meter-wide crevasse, much to her owner’s dismay. The barks emitted by the dog reassured Dale Rahim somewhat: his friend was alive, despite the terrible fall he suffered.

The man immediately contacted local authorities, reports Nanaimo News Bulletin . But he ended up fearing the worst while waiting for help to arrive … The mouth of the earth began to spread an agonizing silence.
