Dog rescued after falling 12 feet into storm drain in Cobb County

COBB COUNTY, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - A dog is back with its owner after being rescued by Cobb County firefighters Monday.

Trixie, an “over-the-road truck driving companion,” fell 12 feet into a storm drain while her owner was stopped. Firefighting crews lowered a firefighter into the drain and Trixie was so excited to be rescued that she jumped straight into the firefighter’s arms.

The poor pup is “a little banged up” according to a veterinarian, but she’ll be just fine.
