Beagle rescued by Good Samaritan on I-470

June 14, 2014

Sgt. Chris Depue,
LSPD

On Tuesday, June 10th, Aaron Schneider was traveling along I-470 when he saw a dog wandering in traffic. He stopped along the highway but before he could reach the dog it was struck by a car.  Aaron stayed with the dog and eventually got him loaded into a vehicle and transported to a vet's office where he is making his recovery. 

News media as well as social media have broadcast the story of the actions of this great young man.  In the news reporting it was stated that the man had called 911 asking for help and was told that an Animal Control officer would be sent to the scene. 

Since the man reported he was on Interstate 470 it was assumed that he was in Lees Summit. 

Follow up investigation has revealed that the incident occurred on I-470 west of the Lee's Summit city limits. 

Aaron's 911 call was not routed to our agency for assistance since he was not located in our jurisdiction.  Lees Summit Police as well as our Animal Control officers were unable to respond to the call since the call for help was routed to another agency. 

We commend the heroic actions of Mr. Schneider and we are glad the dog was rescued. We felt it was necessary to clarify why the resources of the LSPD and our Animal Control division were not sent to the scene.

Questions regarding the incident should be directed to the office of Sgt. Chris Depue, 816-969-1707 or via email at cdepue@cityofls.net.
