A story that has captivated the public in Turkey for the past ten days has come to a happy conclusion, as a puppy who fell in a 230-foot deep well in an Instanbul neighborhood was finally rescued Wednesday.
Students of the Bahcesehir Science and Technology High School had to build a mechanical arm in order to rescue the puppy, named Kuyu. Rescue workers had to use night-vision cameras in the rescue operation, and they’ve had to keep lowering down food and water for the puppy over the past 10 days to keep it alive.
The final rescue operation took three hours. Kuyu has reportedly been adopted by the Beykoz fire brigade.

A rescue official said, “It was not a stable borehole. If it was it would have been much easier. There was also a two metre wide landslip and passage at the bottom of the hole. There was enough space for the dog to move. It was not easy to catch him because of this space. If he was steady it would have been easier to catch. We cornered him with a pro-metric arm and a pressured air compressor. We hook the loop to his body and pulled him up. This is how we managed to rescue him.”
