Emergency services, including Torrevieja Local Police and the Civil Guard rescued a man and his dog from a six metres deep well.
The alert was raised by a passer-by walking through the Lagunas de Torrevieja and La Mata Natural Park, in the area of La Siesta and El Chaparral, after hearing a barking dog coming from the bottom of a well.
The dog had fallen into the well and in an attempt to rescue it, the man also fell into the well.
During the rescue operation, control was set up in co-ordination with the Local Police and the Civil Guard, moving an extendable ladder, to lift the dog from the South Park of Firefighters in Torrevieja.
A command and headquarters unit and a rescue van, with a sergeant, a corporal and six firefighters attended the scene. No injury was sustained to the man or dog in the incident.
