An Oregon woman and her dog fell into a six-metre deep sinkhole.
Officials say the woman fell while searching for her dog in the dark Monday night.
Earlier, the dog had fallen into the hole.
A passerby heard the woman screaming for help and called the authorities, which dispatched a heavy rescue unit equipped with a rope and ladder to save them.
Once above the ground, crews determined the woman and her dog were not hurt.
It's not clear how the sinkhole formed.
