Krefeld (dpa / lnw) - Firefighters rescued a dog from the roof of a building in Krefeld. The animal climbed out of the roof window of an apartment on Monday, the fire department said. It tried several times unsuccessfully to get back into the apartment and injured itself in the process. Passers-by noticed and reported the “unusual incident”.
When the fire brigade arrived, the "frightened animal" was already on the edge of the roof above the third floor and threatened to fall. The firefighters were able to pull the dog into the rescue cage on a turntable ladder. They then brought the animal safely back to the ground.
