SRI AMAN, Feb 17: Once in a while, comes along a relatively different task for firefighters and today, they were challenged with rescuing a puppy whose head was stuck in a storm drain hole.

While not the firefighters’ usual call about battling house fires or rescuing victims from road accidents, a puppy rescue is a norm that doesn’t surprised them.

Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) Sri Aman station chief William Baheng said they responded to the call at 10am about a puppy which had its head stuck in a cement drain at Taman Sri Jaya, Sri Aman and could not get out.

After a careful evaluation of the situation, firefighters used their ‘Paratech’ tools and one of them decided to crawl in the drain in a bid to save the puppy.
