The policeman stopped to investigate. To his great surprise, he found three panic-stricken Pit Bulls trapped under the road, their muzzles poking out from behind the grill of a drain.Matt Rush says:

My first thought was how in the world did they get in there and how did I manage to hear them?

The officer immediately called for reinforcement to help with the animals. Other policemen and fireman quickly arrived on the scene.

They carefully take off the grill which was imprisoning the dogs, put leashes round their necks and managed to haul them out gently, towards firmground...The Pit Bulls were altogether very calm and collected, letting the policemen take care of them. Nonetheless, they were obviouslyrelieved to have finally got out.

Nobody knows how long they were trapped, nor how they managed to get there.The policemen believe that the pups snuck into the drain after it was accidentally left open by the city's workers, and couldn't get out again.

They were then taken in by special services, whowill care for the dogs until they can find their owners. And hopefully they'llforget about this little mistake!Watch the video which captures their moving rescue:
