UTAH COUNTY, Utah — Utah County Sheriff Search and Rescue posted a heartwarming video Sunday of a dog who fell 40 feet being reunited with their owner.

Officials said crews were dispatched to rescue the dog, who fell 40 feet down a snow mote at Stewart Falls.

The 60-pound dog fell into a snow bridge that was created by an avalanche over the falls, officials wrote in a Facebook post.

Because of the location of the dog, team members had to dig a hole through the snow for access and lower someone through to the dog.

Heartwarming video of the dog and the owner can be seen below:
