A dog that had become trapped under a concrete patio was cut free by firefighters.
The family pet reportedly found its way under the patio in Perris, California, on Monday while digging a hole nearby, but became trapped and was unable to navigate its way out again.
Video posted by the Riverside County Fire Department shows firefighters using a circular saw to cut into the patio, before carefully manoeuvring the dog out of the hole.
The force wrote in a Facebook post: “Firefighters responded to a residence on Warbonnett Drive in Perris for reports of a dog stuck underneath the patio. Firefighters arrived on scene & confirmed the family dog was stuck approximately 8 to 9 feet back underneath a concrete patio.
“After carefully cutting a section out of the patio, firefighters were able to safely remove the dog from underneath & return him to his family!”
