INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Firefighters and Animal Care and Control came to the rescue for a young puppy trapped in a sewer drain.

The puppy was saved after first responders and Animal Care and Control were called out to the drain just south of 34th Place and Wellington Avenue at 4:40 p.m. Tuesday.

The puppy named Lasy found its way into the drain through a street opening. Firefighters could hear the puppy barking, but could not pinpoint the location.

Firefighters tried to push the puppy out with small amounts of water. After emptying their tanks of water they could not locate the puppy.

During the final attempt firefighters used a stronger flow of water to flush Lasy out. Lasy could be seen poking its head out. With the visual of the puppy firefighters were able to pinpoint the location.

A mesh capture net was used to catch the puppy. After a few minutes the puppy was brought to safety.

Lasy received a bath, but appeared unharmed.

Puppy owner Erlinda Orellana was grateful for the firefighters and Animal Care and Control Officers’ help.
