Hodge Close quarry

Incident 15 of 2022:-
22/05/2022, 11.28, Hodge Close quarry, NY316017
It was a cloudy and showery morning when we were called by Cumbria Police about a dog that had fallen approximately 45 metres into the main quarry at Hodge Close. We despatched two Land Rovers and soon located the dog, Findlay. A gentleman who was climbing in the quarry was with him. Sadly, after administering CPR, Findlay could not be resuscitated. We put him onto our stretcher and a rope lift system was used to get the stretcher up to the entrance of a water-logged tunnel where we could walk out.
Beautiful Findlay was nearly 3 years old. He was a much loved and happy boy, who was also a therapy dog, helping children and adults with his calm and friendly nature, and big heart. Our thoughts are with his owners, as well as his extended family.
11 volunteer team members attended for 2 hours and 50 minutes.
