Indianapolis firefighters rescue dog from bathtub drain

IFD rescues dog stuck in drain

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Firefighters with the Indianapolis Fire Department rescued a 9-year-old Schnauzer named Boston after his paw got stuck in a bathtub drain Thursday morning.

At 10:13 a.m. Thursday, Boston’s paw got stuck while his owner was giving him a bath and letting him run his tail under the faucet, which Boston likes. Boston’s right foot kicked the bathtub plug out of the drain and became stuck in the metal crossmembers of the drain. After unsuccessfully attempting to remove Boston’s paw for several hours, Boston’s owner called 911 and requested IFD. An hour after the call, firefighters gingerly snipped the metal crossmembers inside the drain and removed Boston’s sore paw.

IFD confirmed that Boston is in good condition.
