Dog rescued after four days under ground

Moscow, Jan 6 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Italian fire fighters have rescued a dog trapped in an underground water supply network for four days after it ran away from noisy fireworks over New Year celebrations.

The dog, Zico, entered the underground system in central Italy's Treia town. It moved forward about 20 metres into the tunnel but then was unable to advance further or return.

A farmer with an excavator helped rescuers access the area, where the dog was trapped some four metres below the ground.
