BROOMFIELD, Colo. (KDVR) – An incredible story of survival at a veterinary hospital confirmed a dog survived a weekend plane crash.
Two people died when the small plane went down in the Anthem Ranch area of Broomfield.
Then, Veterinarians at Arrowhead Animal Hospital in Westminster received word that a 7-year-old dog, named Chata, was found wandering near the wreckage and brought to a local shelter.
The owner of the dog confirmed to the animal hospital that the pit bull mix had been aboard the plane.
“I’ve never dealt with a plane crash victim,” Dr. Ashley MacDonald said.
Chata was being treated at Arrowhead for a laceration behind the ear and was set to be released back to her family. A GoFundMe account has been created to help with her recovery.
The question remains, how was Chata able to survive?
“I don’t know, either,” Dr. MacDonald said. “It’s a miracle, animals can do incredible things.”
