Kerri Willson, says Tigerlily, her 14-year-old golden retriever mix somehow got stuck about 35-feet into an 18-inch sewer pipe last night.

Willson reached out to WBRC and several public officials, and a private contractor was contacted to come out and help. Eventually an excavator was brought in and crews dug in around the pipe and cracked it open to pull Tigerlily free.

They carried her out in a plastic tub and gave her some water.
