From Associated Press

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Firefighters in the Chicago suburb of Naperville are still talking about one of their strangest rescue missions. It involved a small dog who became wedged in its owner’s mechanized recliner chair.

The firefighters who responded to the call from the Sunrise of Naperville assisted living center Thursday night used a saw to cut the chair apart.

Firefighter and paramedic Scott Bolda said that when firefighters arrived, a nurse’s aide was hanging onto the chair to relieve pressure on the dog and allow it to breathe.

Bolda said the chair’s electrical controls stopped working when the dog became wedged inside, so the only option was to saw the chair apart.

“It took about five minutes to get him free,” Bolda said. “We’ve never had to rescue a dog like that before.”
