Flushed puppy's lucky escape


A one-week old puppy has had a lucky escape after a four-year-old boy accidentally flushed it down the toilet.

The cocker spaniel's young owner thought the puppy needed a wash after it got muddy playing in the garden, but the plan went disastrously wrong.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
