Dog survives 14-story fall from air conditioning vent


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A south Florida dog survived a 14-story fall down an air conditioning vent with only cuts and bruises.

"It was a miracle, because she's living now. She's OK. She didn't break anything," said owner Elaine Caralis.

Caralis said she was visiting a friend at a Fort Lauderdale condominium Friday night when she said her dog Suzie fell through a pipe and ended up on the second floor.

It took firefighters three hours to get her out.

"I thought she died, but I was calling her from the wall and she was barking, so I knew she was alive," said Caralis.

Suzie is being treated at an animal hospital and is expected to go home soon.
