(Mead, CO) Colorado firefighters came to the rescue of a big pig stuck in a hole.

The pig named Henry weighs more than 700 pounds.

Henry fell into a six-foot hole on a farm and couldn’t get out.

Firefighters tried hoisting him to safety but they could not move him.

They finally created a small walkway and gave Henry some Dr. Pepper to drink.

He calmed down and was removed from the pit.

Henry was not hurt, but the firefighters ran for cover when he was freed.
