200 pound dog rescued from sinkhole

January 8, 2011

Crews in Nipomo rescued a 200 pound Mastiff that fell into a 20 feet deep and about three feet wide sinkhole.

The dog, Cedric, fell into the backyard sinkhole at 167 West Price Street at about 9 p.m. on Friday.

Crews from CAL Fire and the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department lowered a rescuer into the hole who placed a harness on the dog. At 12:15 a.m., crews hoisted the hefty dog to safety.

The sinkhole is believed to be the remains of an old concrete wall.

Cedric is said to be in good condition.

Good job, saving Cedric.
