MENGZI, China, June 24 (UPI) — Firefighters in China rescued a dog that somehow became trapped inside a squat toilet at its owner’s home.
Video of the rescue in Mengzi, Yunnan Province, shows the dog’s face peering up at firefighters through the toilet drain.
A firefighter dons a glove and reaches into the toilet to pull the dog up through the hole.
The firefighter ends up needing help from a second firefighter to raise the canine head-first from the narrow opening.
The canine, appearing wet but uninjured, is reunited with its owner.
San Diego authorities faced a different sort of animal-in-the-toilet last month when a baby opossum was found swimming in a woman’s toilet bowl.
