Dog saved from underground - level 2

Dog saved from underground - level 2

17-04-2013 06:00

A dog was stuck for days underground. The dog was trapped for five days in a pipe. The exit was blocked by waste. Above ground, the dog's owner was very stressed. She hired a big machine to cut the dog free.

Also, firemen helped her. They used the big machine and other tools to dig down eight feet to get to the pipe. Cutting through it took six hours. A man was sent into the pipe and he returned and was holding the little dog. It was the moment everybody was hoping for.

The digging left the car park a little bit messed up but this story did have a happy ending.

Interesting words: trapped (caught), dig (make a hole in the ground).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
