Tuesday night, a neighbor living near Southeast 38th and Clinton in Portland heard cries for help. A 30-year-old woman had gone into her backyard looking for her Poodle when she fell into a 20-foot deep sink hole. She found her dog at the bottom of the hole.
Portland Fire Fighters used a rope to pull up the dog. They put a ladder into the hole, so the woman could crawl out.
The bottom of the hole was filled with water. They were cold, but not hurt.
A neighbor told firefighters they recently had work done on a sewage system which might have caused the sink hole.
