A dog has been rescued by firefighters after getting trapped under garden decking.

Scooter, a 10-month-old pup, became trapped after trying to seek shelter during a thunderstorm.

Firefighters, from South Metro Fire and Rescue in Denver, Colorado, had to take a chainsaw to the decking before they could dig poor Scooter free.

Lesson learned – if you get caught out in the thunder and rain, don’t hide under wooden decking.

A mantra that’s sure to catch on.
