Texas firefighters rescue puppy from storm drain

(Elgin Fire Department)

An amazing rescue was recently pulled off in Texas. 

A puppy had fallen into a storm drain while out with his owner. Firefighters with the Elgin Fire Department were quick to jump into action though. A video was shared on Facebook of Firefighter Daniel Lopez in the storm drain. He can be seen passing the happy pup to his fellow firefighters and coworkers before climbing out of the storm drain himself. 


The puppy was not injured and was returned to its owner, according to the fire department. 

First responders in Central Texas are gearing up to prepare for potentially more rescues with this week's predicted storms. First responders with the Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services answered 18 water rescue calls in the span of five hours after last Friday’s storms.
