A follow up to the news item last Thursday about the two dogs that ran onto an electrified railway line.
Both of them are alive.
Again from the Liverpool Echo:
Alive: the two dogs that strayed on 750v railway
Dec 8 2006

THE owner of two dogs nearly electrocuted on railway lines in front of horrified passengers has been reunited with one of her pets.
An ecstatic Linda Condillac welcomed back Brooke, one of the two-year-old mongrels which was presumed lost.
But her family are still anxiously awaiting news on Bubble, who sustained severe electric shocks on the lines near Crosby station.
Track operator Network Rail had initially said the dog had died in the incident, but the animal is fighting for her life and has had a metal plate and pin inserted into her pelvis before undergoing surgery later this week.
Bubble and Brooke were left injured by shocks from the 750 vault current as more than 100 shocked commuters watched the grim spectacle.
The incident sparked passenger outrage as requests to turn off the power had been repeatedly ignored.
