A local man and his four-legged friend were reunited on Tuesday afternoon, February 12th. Shortly before 2:00 p.m., the Henderson County Rescue Squad received a call for assistance of a dog inside of a vehicle which had stalled out in high water. The victim was able to get to dry ground but had to leave his dog behind. The Rescue Squad deployed a boat and was able to safely rescue his four-legged friend.  Water will still be up over some of the roads in the county for the next couple of days, so remember, “turn around, don’t drown!”
