Because the team had to gently prod the dog with video equipment 10 feet at a time over a 200-foot span, the rescue took longer than expected.
A brief about an eight-hour effort used a camera to rescue a puppy that was stuck in a San Antonio sewer
After spending more than eight hours stuck in a San Antonio sewer system, a puppy was eventually rescued by rescuers. Three young puppies were reportedly playing close to the main sewage when they unintentionally slipped into it. The San Antonio Fire Department attempted to free all three of the trapped pups, but it was not successful. After that, the firefighters got in touch with San Antonio Water System (SAWS), who assisted in the third puppy’s rescue.
The rescue took time, according to KSAT, because the team had to gently move the puppy with camera equipment 10 feet at a time for a total distance of 200 feet. Following the successful rescue, the puppy, called Pipa by the rescuers, was taken to the vet for a check-up before being given to its owners.
“Sewer Surprise: Late Wednesday night, SAWS crews used televising cameras to rescue a puppy which somehow found its way into the system through a private line. Pup was picked up by ACS and taken to a vet to be checked out,” reads the message put beside the photographs uploaded on X.
