Cancun firemen rescue puppy from water well

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun firemen were called to rescue a puppy from a private water well in SM 230 Sunday. The rescue was made after its owners called emergency services for help.

According to Cancun Police, the dog fell into the well Saturday. After trying unsuccessfully to pull the dog from the well, its owners requested help. The Cancun C-5 Centre sent four firemen in two units to the private home where one of the smaller firemen was sent down into the well.
