Bizarre call to save ‘distressed dog stuck inside wind turbine’ leaves firefighters stumped  

Credit:  By Dan Kemp | Hull Daily Mail | 15 Jan 2020 | www.hulldailymail.co.uk ~~

Firefighters have been called out to a “distressed dog” trapped in a wind turbine in East Yorkshire.

Six Humberside Fire and Rescue crew members from the Howden team descended on the huge structure in Eastrington after reports of an animal was trapped inside it.

A disc cutter had to be used to cut their way into turbine after being called by a concerned member of the public, however, all was not as it first seemed.

Despite the team and the caller agreeing that “random noises like a distressed dog” were coming from it, the sounds actually turned out to be coming from the blades themselves.

The fire service searched the turbine but had no luck in finding the animal, instead putting it down to a false alarm.

Sharing the news on social media, Ian Marrit of Humberside Fire and Rescue, said: “Turned out to a dog stuck in base of wind turbine with Howden, Humberside Fire this afternoon.

“False alarm good intent called in by a concerned member of the public. Who knew wind turbines made random noises like a distressed dog it really did, six firefighters all agreed.”
