Citizens of Puebla joined together to ask the state government to collaborate in the rescue of a pair of puppies that fell into the sinkhole that occurred in the town of Santa María Zacatepec on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 9.
After the many requests of the inhabitants to help the dogs, elements of Civil Protection went to the place of the incident and tried to get them to climb up with the help of a fence, the third option considered by the government administration to help them.
The brigade members tried to rescue the pair of dogs on two occasions, but the rain that fell in the area forced them to temporarily stop their work for almost an hour, but after the bad weather passed, they were able to successfully assist the dogs without any mishap.
