Two days after a building collapsed a dog was discovered in the rubble.
On Friday, a 100-year-old building in Sioux Falls, South Dakota crumbled while workers were converting an old bar into a convenience store.
A woman, Emily Fodness, was trapped under the debris. She was rescued but her three dogs remained in the building. One was discovered shortly after Fodness, a second a few hours later but one still remained: a beagle named Molly.
Yesterday, 48 hours later, City Emergency Manager Regan Smith was on the scene when she heard a faint bark.
“‘Did you hear that?’ I asked (the engineer),” Smith told USA Today.
A search-and-rescue team was able to retrieve the dog shortly after, and the family was on site to reunite with Molly.
The beagle was in good condition.

A construction worker, Ethan McMahon, died during the building collapse. A makeshift memorial has been set up to honor him.
