Atlantic City Police came to the rescue of a small dog that fell into some sort of hole in Atlantic City.

Police say the incident happened last week on States Avenue Beach.

Police officers worked with local firefighters and others to pull the dog to safety.

Police credit contractors from Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, LLC andDock Connection LLC with providing heavy equipment to get the dog to safety.

The dog can be heard yelping at the beginning of the video:

If this incident reminds you of the classic TV show "Lassie", where Timmy - a boy - fell in a well, and Lassie - the dog - saved him, here's a shocker: it apparently never happened that way! Check it out:

Great job ACPD and ACFD!
