A dog trapped in a water tank barked continually until help finally arrived. People walking past an old water treatment plant in Charleston, Ill., heard a Labrador retriever crying out for help Sunday. Firefighters arrived on the scene and used a harness to lift the 80-pound dog out of the 14-foot deep tank.
The dog, which had been reported missing, was unhurt. The firefighters returned the animal to its owner. It’s unclear how the dog ended up in the water tank.
