PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Fire Department helped a dog named Lola out of a small drainage culvert on Tuesday. Lola found herself stuck in the culvert around 9 a.m., on Kilby Road and Crest Drive in Park City.

A culvert is defined by a website named The Constructor as a tunnel structure located under roadways or railways to provide cross drainage. Also, the structure is used to take electrical or other cables from one side to another. 

PCFD said in a Facebook post she entered the culvert and followed its path under the road. However, at the end of the structure were rocks covering the exit, and it was too small for her to turn around.

In order to rescue Lola, firefighters and EMTs moved the boulders blocking her exit, then helped her get out. 

Luckily, Lola made it out with no injuries and was happy to see her family.
