Dramatic Rescue: Deaf and Blind Lhasa Apso Is Trapped in a Sinkhole for Seven Hours

Samantha is a 14-year-old, deaf and blind Lhasa Apso. Last week, she was on a walk with her owner Susanne Geary in their backyard in Frederick, Maryland, when a sinkhole opened up and she fell into it. She landed 12 feet down. The sinkhole was three feet wide. She had been wearing a collar and leash, but it slipped off when Geary tried to pull her up.

Samantha remained down there for more than seven hours.

“I was looking at the bird feeder and the next thing I knew, she was gone,” owner Geary toldFrederick News-Post. “I screamed, ‘Help! Help!’ And some neighbors came out to help me but we could not get her out, so of course, we had to call 911.”
