DOG SURVIVES 250-FOOT FALL OFF CLIFF
We've heard about cats surviving big falls, but dogs? Norman the 18-month-old Weimaraner seems to be the exception. Last August, Norman survived a 250-foot drop over the White Cliffs of Dover, England. Norman's owner Simon Spore told BBC that his fiancée's son was on a walk with the dog when it began to chase a rabbit. The boy lost control over Norman and the dog tumbled over the cliffs, landing in the docks below. Dock workers came to Norman's side and saw that while the dog looked hurt, he was still alive. After an examination, it was concluded that Norman had suffered a collapsed lung and broken pelvis, but amazingly, was ultimately fine. Norman was able to make a speedy recovery and can now move around with little pain.
