Laurie Cipriano, KUSA-TV:

There is no such thing as a typical day as a firefighter. They have to be prepared to respond to anything.

Saturday, however, was a first for members of Mountain View Fire and Rescue, Station 3.

Video posted to YouTube shows the firefighters trying to rescue Henry, a pig that tips the scales between 700 and 1,300 lbs, depending on who you ask.

Henry fell into a 6-foot deep hole at a farm in Mead.
