Puppy in a pipe rescued by Pompano Beach Fire Rescue

It wasn’t a cat in a tree but a puppy in a pipe that kept Pompano Beach Fire Rescue busy Thursday.

The dog’s owner told firefighters that her puppy Lucy was not on a leash when she ran into bushes and then fell into a 6 foot pipe.

Firefighter Paramedic Louis Padilla dangled the animal’s leash down the hole and managed to lasso Lucy and pull her to safety.

First responders then used a child’s oxygen mask to help revive the tired animal.

They say she did not have any obvious injuries.
