Indianapolis Fire Department responds with major trench rescue operation to save a two-year old pitbull, US
A two-year old American Pitbull pup named Mansa is safely back with his owner after falling into a 12 foot trench while on an early morning walk. Mansa's owner told fire fighters that a contractor dug the trench this morning and left it open, hidden by two piles of dirt. The lot where it was dug is adjacent to the dog owner's home at 2365 N Parker Avenue and when the homeowner let the dog into the yard, he promptly found and fell into the hole. Thankfully he was not injured.
The Indianapolis Fire Department Trench Rescue team was dispatched to the scene.
Once fire fighters were able to shore up the existing trench, making it safe for entry, they rescued the pup without incident. #IACS arrived on scene, checked the dog for injury and released it back to the owner ok.
The contractor arrived back on scene to secure the open trench.
