West Virginia Dalmatian Freed From Underground Drain
Dog trapped underground in a storm drain for four days has been rescued.
Listen carefully, and you'll hear a grown man cry: Tears of triumph over tragedy. Finding his buried dog: alive.
This is a story of sheer perseverance! It could have had a completely different ending. The threat of a cave in, after heavy rain, was very real!
Alex the Dalmation was trapped 15 feet underground in an old storm drain. He crawled in to cool offand got stuck.
A danger, not only to the trapped dog, but it's owner: who had been digging for days to try and free Alex. A friend with a backhoe came to help, inching dangerously close. It's giant, iron claw capable of ripping the animal in half. A hole large enough to swallow this ladder whole and everyone and everything in it.
That was the thing we had to whisper a little prayer for last night, because these dogs get to be like part of the family.
But after 4 days of searching and two days of digging, Alex, was free.
