LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- Frightening moments Wednesday afternoon for a Lexington dog owner.
Melissa Wilson's 9-week old Maltese fell into a pipe on Trade Street.
She says the hole was covered with leaves and she didn't realize the dog had fallen in until she heard him crying.
She couldn't get him out so she called for help and some firefighters showed up to rescue him.
Wilson says the puppy was trapped for about 45 minutes.
