SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Fire officials and workers from the Humane Society saved a dog named Ruby from a sinkhole in San Diego on Tuesday.
The massive 20-foot sinkhole appeared near the median of a road near an elementary school after a series of winter storms drenched the area.
The hole formed around 11 a.m. and the Humane Society received calls saying that there was a dog stuck inside around 9 p.m.
City officials say that the sinkhole formed when the storm drain collapsed. There is still too much water to assess the damage and make repairs.
However, Ruby was not injured during the ordeal and was returned to her owner.
