Deaf dog rescued from cave

Rescue workers in Australia have saved a deaf dog after he got stuck in a cave for five days. A cavalier King Charles Spaniel, called Scooby, could not hear the calls from his anxious owners.

Specialist mine rescue teams used a tiny camera to find the dog through cracks in the cave before inflating compressed air bags to move the rock out of the way before pulling him to safety.
