FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A small dog is recovering after falling 16 stories from a South Florida condominium.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue workers say Susie, a maltipoo, fell through a pipe chase and landed on a piece of concrete in the pipe chase on the second floor.

Fire crews cut holes above and below the second floor to try to reach Susie. They eventually removed her from the shaft before she fell any further.

Susie was taken to the Oakland Park Animal Hospital, where her condition was unknown.
