LISBON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Thanks to complete strangers who transformed into a unified rescue crew, Darryl the dog is safe tonight.
Drivers on Route 196 in Lisbon saw a fox jet across the street, then noticed a dog quickly running after it. The dog ended up stuck on the frozen ice of Sabattus River. Luckily, after some quick thinking, a group of people who had pulled over on Lisbon Road decided to go down the hill and slide a log out to the dog, and it worked.
"We went down and put a stick across and a little bit of teamwork and it ended up a good day," Dave Harvey, a passerby who helped rescue the dog, said.
Darryl was quickly dried off and seemed perfectly find once he was saved.
