A 13-year-old blind dog found himself in deep trouble and a tight squeeze.

Cesar fell into a 15-foot deep, 3-foot wide hole Monday night at a construction site in Pasadena. After barks alerted people to his plight, a rescue team set up a system of ropes and pulleys for the rescue operation.

Video of the 13-minute rescue shows a member of the fire-rescue team being lowered by a rope into the darkness of the hole and returning to the surface with Cesar secured to a harness.

The dog, covered in dust but in good shape, apparently wandered onto the site near his home. Cesar was returned to his owner.
