A dog has emerged as a local hero after aiding in the rescue of its owner following a car crash in the rugged terrain of northeastern Oregon. Authorities confirmed the incident.

The man, driving with his four dogs, plunged into a ravine on June 2. One resourceful dog journeyed nearly four miles to their family's campsite, alerting them to the dire situation. The family discovered the wreckage the next day and immediately called 911, unable to reach the steep crash site themselves.

US Forest Service teams, aided by chainsaws, cleared a path through the dense vegetation to make way for search and rescue operations. Utilizing a complex rope system, rescuers managed to transport the injured man across the ravine, overcoming the challenging conditions. The man was airlifted to a regional hospital, with his three other dogs found alive at the scene.
