Video shows small dog rescued from sixth floor ledge of Las Vegas hotel

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A group of people gathered at the pool of the Virgin Hotel Thursday to watch nervously as a small black dog stood on the ledge of a sixth floor hotel room.

Martha Montgomery sent the video of the tense moments to 8NewsNow.com. The video shows the small dog standing still on the ledge outside the room's French door windows.

It appears someone inside the room broke the lock and was able to open the French doors, reach over the railing and grab the dog, pulling it to safety. The crowd watching below cheered and clapped when seeing the dog would be OK.

8NewsNow.com asked Virgin Hotels about the incident and said the French doors are locked shut but can be opened in an emergency. Virgin Hotels did not provide any further information on how the dog made it to the patio ledge of the room.
