Wichita fire crews stage dramatic dog rescue

Wichita, Kan., fire crews stage dramatic rescue to save trapped dog in creek By The Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) ' Just as Wichita officials were holding a news conference to announce their efforts to save a dog had failed, a firefighter saw wet canine nostrils appear in a tiny hole in concrete.

It was the 100-pound mutt trapped in a culvert next to a drainage ditch.

The Wichita Eagle ( reported that Thursday's news conference broke up suddenly as the firefighter called for help. Crews already suited up in scuba gear leapt back into the water-filled ditch to search for Taz, and firefighters started up the concrete saws.

Once they cut a large enough hole, one of the scuba divers stuck a hand in to grab Taz and was promptly bit. But minutes later, he was free.

The emotional owner promptly gave a thank you news conference.
