The brigade sent two units to help the charity rescue Nicola from the canal alongside Nangor Rd.

Nicola had spent a long time in the water, according to the SPCA.

“We would especially like to thank the fireman from Canada who got into the water to assist us in the rescue – mounties always get their donkeys!” it added on its Facebook page.
