HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Linemen with Horry Electric Cooperative responded to a unique call on Sunday morning.

According to information on Horry Electric’s Facebook page, technicians were alerted to a baby owl that had fallen out of its nest.

Justin Cummings, A-class line technician with Horry Electric, was able to assist the Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center by hanging a basket, which will serve as a new nest for the owls, the post stated.
