SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Firefighters and police officers had to be called in to help rescue a dog that ended up trapped in a San Antonio River Walk drainage tunnel while chasing a squirrel.
The San Antonio Express-News reports (https://bit.ly/1SeEx1W ) that Luna, a 2-year-old mixed-breed pup, was taking a walk with her owners Thursday afternoon when she took off after a squirrel.
While chasing the squirrel, Luna jumped over a wall and ended up falling 15 to 20 feet into a drainage tunnel below.
After police officers were unable to reach the dog, firefighters were called in to help free her.
Firefighter Aaron Gill used a ladder to descend into the drain and retrieve Luna.
Authorities said that despite her tumble down the tunnel, Luna suffered no serious injuries.
