Close call on Don River banks
Woman runs into trouble walking dog
0 0

Every time there's a chance of flooding the warnings come out...avoid rivers and streams.

Toronto Fire said Friday things may have been worse if a woman chose to ignore that advice.

A woman ran into a little bit of trouble while out for a morning walk with her dog.

On Don River Blvd (just west of Sheppard and Bathurst and under Sheppard), her pooch scampered into the water of the Don River.

The woman got closer, but did the right thing by not going in the water and called Toronto Fire.

The dog managed to get out on its own but then the woman had trouble getting back to safety.

Firefighters came in and helped get the woman and her pooch out of trouble.

Toronto Fire advises staying at least a metre away from water and always keeping pets on a leash.
