Firefighters Rescue Dog Trapped Overnight in Well

By Dave Matlow

Hours of anxiety over a missing Dachshund ended happily early today after Westport firefighters rescued the animal from an abandoned well where it had been trapped overnight.WestportNow.com Image

The dog’s owner, Pam Nistico, said she had walked 1-year-old Brody late Saturday night and then returned to her home on the grounds of her family’s Red Barn Restaurant, 292 Wilton Road. When she put him down, Brody playfully chased after the family cat.

After a while, Nistico became concerned when she could not find Brody. She and her daughter, Desiree, 19, and a friend searched frantically on nearby streets.

They called Westport police for help and even spotted a state trooper on the nearby Merritt Parkway where he had stopped a speeder and asked if he had seen the dog. The trooper used his flashlight to look into the woods off the parkway. But Brody was nowhere to be found.

“Supporting the U.N., showing this sort of friendship is vital, since there isn’t an important topic on the planet this world organization is not addressing,” said Westport’s Michaela MacColl, the president of the International Hospitality Committee of Fairfield County.

Guests were first greeted at the Saugatuck Elementary School with breakfast and short speeches from First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, MacColl, United Nations Under Secretary General Ibrahim A. Gambari and other dignitaries.

Testing of the stream, which runs from near the Fairfield town line south through much of the Greens Farms area to Sherwood Mill Pond, began June 18, according to Chief Sanitarian Jeff Andrews.

“We’re trying to narrow down where the high counts are and isolate the contributing factors that could cause them,” he said.

“Drainage pipes, for example. There are several reasons why they could be there – pool backwash, sump pump discharge or illegal septic overflow.”

Today’s Westport Town Hall meeting discussed tree safety on the Merritt Parkway, including this incident on May 5 near exit 42 in Westport, which caused no injuries. A Westchester couple died in a June 9 accident, however. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo ©2007 WestportNow.com

The two-hour meeting at Town Hall followed Joseloff’s June 11 letter to Gov. M. Jodi Rell in which he urged her to examine tree safety along the parkway following the deaths of a Westchester couple whose car was hit by a falling tree near exit 42 in Westport on June 9. (See WestportNow June 11, 2007)

Rell responded that she shared his concerns and said that she has directed ConnDOT to work with the Merritt Parkway Conservancy and local officials to analyze and address the safety and integrity of the trees along the road.

Leading the ConnDOT team to Westport was Robert P. Mongillo, transportation maintenance administrator, who was accompanied by seven others, including road maintenance officials, arborists, and roadway planners.

“Westport’s local plan is very good,” she said. “We have doctors advising us and we have a very good relationship with first-responders.”

Jacozzi, who has served in her post for almost two years, said, “It’s a worry that we don’t have anti-virals or a vaccine. Yet we are constantly thinking of what could happen, and trying to be a step ahead.”
