Fire Crew Rescue Dog That Fell 16 Stories

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A small dog is recovering after falling 16 stories from a South Florida condominium.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue workers say Susie, a Maltipoo, fell through a pipe chase and landed on a piece of concrete in the pipe chase on the second floor.

Fire crews cut holes above and below the second floor to try to reach Susie. They eventually removed her from the shaft before she fell any further.

She is being treated at an animal hospital. Her condition was not known.
