To Rescue Plane Survivors
GOOSE RAY. LABRADOR - A
new technique for rescuing sin
vivors of plane crash . m the 11" n
Labrador w;mb-lands bv pm n’
ing dogsled teams by parachut" has
been developed tv. Die a.r Ira'.: -m
The newly developed opi-iation
“dogsled" will save pn-emus i-mms
for plane crash survivors c:.p"-ed
to the bitter cold and P'-sMbly ail
fering from injuries row .mi wl.cn
their craft plunged enrthwoid.
Conceived by Sgt George E. Ab
bolt, Norfolk, Va., the unusu: I res-
cue operation is especially valuab (
because some areas ol Hie ,v 'ody
terrain in Labrador are so d, n
that helicopters cannot land.
Huskies sleds and para-doctors
jump from C-47's via the silk chute
route and gather together at a focal
point where dog teams arc assem-
bled, Then the unit proceeds to the
scene of the crash where it adrmii
isters first aid, evacuates the seri-
ously wounded and provides food.
The entire procedure lasts only a
few minutes, contrasting sharply
with the hours and days that it ha;
taken overland rescue teams to
roach some crash scenes in Die past.

Every fall the zoo is deluged with
requests to borrow or rent tigers

leges which want the animals for
mascots All are turned down.
