Around 6:30 p.m., two officers responded to the 3300 block of Mount Pleasant Street in Northwest. When they arrived they learned that Max had fallen into a hole.

Concerned about his health, the officers jumped into action. One officer took hold of the other officers feet and lowered him into the hole.

And just like a fairytale, this story has a happy ending. The officers successfully rescued Max!

Thank you, officers!
