North Carolina fire department saves dog from flooded car

Officials say a dog trapped inside a car that was flooded and upside down in a canal in North Carolina survived for 20 minutes before volunteer firefighters rescued it. In a Facebook post, the Crawford Township Volunteer Fire Department said it received a call early Sunday about an overturned vehicle in a canal in Moyock. When firefighters arrived, they found a convertible sports car and the driver, who was out of the vehicle. The dog was said to be missing. A towing company overturned the car to help the volunteers gain access. The dog was found under the dash floorboard, where the volunteers say there was an air pocket. The dog appeared to be unhurt.
