On Thursday, a Uniontown, Pennsylvania resident named Deja Drake-Darnell spotted a puppy stuck on a ledge as she walked along a creek.

Immediately, she ran over to the nearby police car of Lieutenant Tom Kolencik and told him about the stranded pup.

The Lieutenant found a ladder and climbed down to the creek. Then, he crossed the creek and retrieved the puppy.

Kolencik thanked Drake-Darnell in a Facebook post and mentioned that he didn’t think the puppy would have survived the night without her help.

Thanks to Drake-Darnell’s quick thinking and Lieutenant Kolencik’s leap into action, the puppy was unharmed and was reunited with their family shortly after being rescued.
