Dog saved

ON SUNDAY Sept. 20, while inspecting the US84 Westbound Bridge over the Mississippi River between Natchez and Vidalia, Stantec Bridge Inspector Craig Jenkins noticed a stranded hound dog on the adjacent bridge structure just downstream beneath the bridge deck, more than 120 feet above the river. Ryan Nataluk, lead climber and rescue technician for the Stantec team, called the police for assistance and climbed to the distressed dog. After assessing the dog for injuries and fashioning a makeshift harness for the canine out of rope, the exhausted hound was lifted to safety. An officer with the Natchez Police Department took the dog for evaluation. (Photo courtesy Ben Carter, Senior Public Relations Specialist, Stantec)
