Utah Task Force 1 Looses a "Great Friend" Jake
Jake in NYC at Camp M.A.S.H Located at Ground Zero NYC
A black Labrador who became a national canine hero after burrowing through white-hot, smoking debris in search of survivors at the World Trade Center site died Wednesday after a battle with cancer.
Jake was put to sleep Wednesday after a last stroll through the fields and a dip in the creek near his home in Oakley, Utah. He was in too much pain at the end, shaking with a 105-degree fever as he lay on the lawn.
I had the pleasure to meet Jake Last Year during an event in Park City with the Park City FD.
He will be missed by me & the members of the Utah Urban Search & Rescue Team-- Utah Task Force One located in Salt Lake City
