The Dog was Rescued:
Man dies trying to rescue dog
from 15-20 ft. deep quarry pond

A 30-year-old Murray man drowned while trying to save a dog from a quarry pond near his home late Friday night, Orleans County Sheriff Christopher Bourke said. Numerous first responders were called to the quarry off Canal Road about 8:45 p.m. for a report of a man in the water yelling for help.

Volunteers from Murray Joint Fire District, Albion, Carlton, Medina and Clarendon responded, along with Emergency Management Office officials and Niagara County Underwater Response Team. Crews used lights and small rescue boats to search for the man, whose body was found at 11:14 p.m., Bourke said. He was identified as Ryan J. Perkins, 30, of Canal Road. The dog was rescued.

The quarry, owned by Michael and Michelle Vendetti, is about 15 to 20 feet deep. Bourke, in a press statement, did not say whether the dog belonged to Perkins. State Department of Environmental Conservation officers and state police also assisted at the scene.
