Dramatic rescue of dog stuck under tram
A white poodle was rescued on Monday night after becoming stuck under a tram in Melbourne's CBD.
A Victoria Police spokesman told news.com.au officers were called to the intersection of Swanston and Bourke streets about 8.50pm to reports of the pet's predicament.
"The dog was eventually freed," he said.
"A man at the scene was arrested in relation to a separate ongoing investigation."
Footage broadcast by 7 News shows about a dozen emergency services workers at the scene, peering under the stopped tram with torches.
A crowd of onlookers watched as the animal was freed and bundled into a towel.
Trams were momentarily diverted due to the "disruption" in Bourke Street Mall, Yarra Trams said.
They resumed along their normal lines an hour after the incident.
Bourke Street trams have resumed along their normal lines following the earlier disruption. Delays may occur as we restore normal frequency.— Yarra Trams (@yarratrams) February 1, 2021
