Cats have been known to get trapped in trees, inside car engines, and behind brick walls. Now rescuers have saved a cat that managed to crawl inside a drainpipe.
Crews from Southlake’s public works department responded with specialized camera equipment to capture an image of the trapped cat. After more than two hours, a Southlake firefighter coaxed the cat from hiding. The two emerged from the manhole unharmed, the report said.
“It’s not everyday that we get rescue calls of this kind,” said Wade Carroll, deputy fire chief, “But when we do, our training kicks in and it’s great to see how our firefighters responded and helped to reunite a beloved family pet with its owner.”
