Oregon firefighters dig camel out of sinkhole

Firefighters in the US state of Oregon were called to one of their more unusual jobs - digging a camel out of a sinkhole.

They were called by the owners of the 1,500lb (680kg) pet, called Moses, who said they were unable to free him.

The rescuers had to dig for hours to rescue Moses, whose long skinny legs were deep in the mud.

A vet later checked the camel and said he was unhurt.
