A stray dog was recently rescued by Delhi Fire Service officials in Delhi’s Green Park after it got stuck in the drain for over three days. The dog’s cries were heard by someone on the road, prompting them to alert the authorities.
A video of the rescue operation was shared on social media by Simanta V. Mahanta. According to the clip, the dog was unable to get out of the gutter after entering through a broken manhole. Then, to ensure the dog’s safe recovery, fire department officers expertly drilled into the road to rescue the terrified animal. According to the minute-long video, officials also used several tools to cut the road and then manually cleared rocks from the road. A few minutes later they could hear the dog. The dog was then pulled out by a fire safety official and was provided with food and water.

In a similar incident, a frightened puppy was rescued after being trapped in a sewer in the US for eight hours. The incident took place in San Antonio, and the puppy was one of three that fell into an open valve while playing in the front yard of a home, according to a report in the New York Post. San Antonio firefighters pulled two puppies to safety, but were unable to catch the third, which had crawled deeper into the sewer line.
The massive rescue operation began when the department called the San Antonio Water System for assistance. Using a small camera, staff located the dog inside the sewer and carefully redirected it 200 feet to a sewer opening found across the street.
After almost eight hours, the dog, named Pipa by the rescuers, was pulled out and saved.
