1/3/2013 - Cola the Dog Saved in Lima, OH
The article link was disabled. Here is the text we were able to recover.
[In Lima, Ohio, a house fire broke out the morning of January 3, 2013. An adult occupant escaped from an upstairs room, but the family dog Cola hid in the basement. Nearly fifteen minutes after firefighters started attacking the fire in the freezing cold, they discover the dog-apparently lifeless-and bring her upstairs and out onto the snow. Luckily, the Lima Fire Department had been the recipient of a gift: pet oxygen masks, made to fit the long snouts of dogs and other pets. Firefighters worked on Cola for nearly five minutes, giving her oxygen, until she started breathing again. Her emotional owner, anxiously watching nearby, cried tears of relief and gratitude.
The house fire was caught on video; toward the end, near the 16:00 minute mark, you can see the firefighters bringing Cola out of the house and laying her on the snow to start resuscitation efforts. Unfortunately the video does not extend to her successful recovery.
DAH partnered with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association to purchase pet oxygen mask kits for 4 local fire departments - Delphos, Lima, American Township, and Spencerville. The kits were acquired through the Wag'N O2 Fur Life Program in September and 2 more were acquired just a few days ago.
