The Naches Fire Department flew a drone down over the wreckage site once the weather cleared and guess what they found? A little black and white puppy was found in the wreckage along with Swett's body.
Swett's car had tumbled 200 feet making it difficult for first responders to retrieve Swett's body but miraculously, the puppy was found halfway down to the crash site and quickly brought back up to the highway for care.
The puppy and body were brought up to the highway and the body was released to the Yakima County Coroner, the puppy is currently being cared for by one of the Naches Fire Department's paid on-call members.
A sad story with a somewhat happy ending for the puppy. Who knows what would've happened to the poor little puppy if not for the actions of all of the quick first responders on the scene?
