A significant “crow rescue operation” was being conducted by some Uttar Pradesh firefighters at Lucknow’s Latouche Road on Monday, while a sizable portion of the state’s populace was occupied with casting ballots in the fourth phase of the 2024 Lok Sabha Polls. An entangled crow required the assistance of a team of firefighters, a hydraulic crane, and local support to carry out the “one of its kind” rescue operation.

The firefighters successfully completed the two-hour rescue mission by freeing the crow, giving it water and biscuits, and releasing it.

The operation was headed by lead fireman Balbir Singh. “It was a typical day, and then we got a call from a local who hails from Latouche road, Lucknow, informing us about a crow, which she said has been stranded for hours.”

Without pausing for consideration, Singh and his group hurried to the location only to discover that the crow had become stuck at the top of the tree. However, the crew realized before the rescue attempt could begin that it would be challenging for the firefighters to ascend because the crow was stuck at the top of the tree. Singh explained, “We decided to rope in a hydraulic crane to rescue the crow because the spot was out of human reach.”

The Aminabad Unit’s hydraulic crane was demanded by the firefighters. The fire department’s hydraulic crane needed an additional hour to arrive at the location so that the crow could be saved. “We had to spend about two hours and thirty minutes rescuing the crow that was discovered trapped in a kite flying thread. Before releasing it, we gave the crow water and a biscuit,” he said.

Locals and observers praised the fire department for its unique rescue operation and commended the firefighters for acting as good samaritans. It’s a good deed, indeed. The crow was stranded for more than 10 hours and, hence, we informed the fire department. It’s kind of them that they did not ignore the call and came out to rescue the poor crow,” said Sudhakar Diwedi, a local who spotted the crow first.

Some locals said that initially, they thought that the crow would set itself free but after seeing it stranded for more than 10 hours, they decided to approach the fire department.
