Drone captures the moment a South Australian tradie rescues pet dog from a cliff


South Australian tradie Aden Pfitzner has gone to new heights to rescue his beloved dog missing for two days.

He scaled a volcanic crater to reach his pet kelpie named Macey – the dramatic rescue captured by a drone.

The couple put a call-out online when Macey initially went missing.

A council worker then messaged them to say he’d heard barking from a volcanic crater wall.

“My dad has the drone … I just said ‘Dad get your drone, it’s going to help us out a lot,” Pfitzner’s partner Kelsea Fox told Sunrise.

As soon as Pfitzner spotted the missing canine, he leapt into action.

“As soon as she laid her eyes on me, I thought that if I took off, she might try to climb down,” Pfitzner said.

“I just thought, bugger it, while I’m here … I may as well give it a go and grab her.”

Pfitzner gave Macey a big cuddle when he finally reached her, before a mate helped lower the pair down to the ground.

“If I had seen him going up there I probably would have freaked out,” Fox said.

“But climbing down, I saw it all and it was very scary.”

The couple believe Macey was stolen and later dumped on the cliff, as they’d checked the area the day before and didn’t see her.

The pet was given a clean bill of health by the vet, and now has a GPS tracker attached to her collar.
