Lucky dog survives 14-story fall

  • Susie the Maltipoo slid down a shaft 14 stories
  • Her owner heard her barking from below and called for help

Firefighters pulled Susie the Maltipoo out of a pipe chase Friday after she had fallen 14 stories in an Oakland Park, Florida, condominium.

CNN affiliate WSVN reports that her owner had stopped to visit a friend in the building when the dog somehow slipped through the shaft and fell. Her owner, Elaine Caralis, tells WSVN, "It was a miracle because she's living now. She's OK. She didn't break anything. I mean, she just has some cuts and bruises."
