The Sacramento Fire Department rescued a dog Monday that fell 15 feet down a loose manhole cover and got trapped in a storm drain.

The fire department shared a video on Facebook capturing the dramatic rescue. A rescuer was lowered into the drain to find the dog, Frank, and bring him back up, according to the description of the video.
After being lowered, the rescuer called and whistled out to Frank. The video cut to the dog and the rescuer being lifted out of the drain and on to the surface.
Frank, with a wagging tail, gives the firefighters some attention and seems to nod his head in gratitude.
The dog suffered “a few scrapes and bruises” but is in good spirits, said the fire department.
