Members of the Maury County Fire Department were dispatched to the remote banks of the River Duck early Monday morning and managed to rescue a dog trapped along a steep embankment higher than most buildings in the area .

Captain Tommy Stanfill said the dog, a coon hound named Angel, was trapped along the riverside under a 30- to 40-foot cliff in the greater Yanahli Park area off Sowill Mill Pike and Rieves Bend Road east of Columbia.

Volunteer firefighters from three surrounding stations, Nos. 1, 10 and 12, were dispatched to the scene in the afternoon as the department’s team of rope specialists led the rescue.

Firefighter Mikey Garcia pushed back off the cliff and retrieved the animal before the two were brought to safety.
