Loudoun County Fire and Rescue (LCFR) crews were alerted to reports of children being stuck in a storm water pipe at about 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Firefighters from Leesburg then raced to the 42000 block of Victory Lane where they found the two children.

In a Facebook post shared on Wednesday, a fire department spokesperson said: "The first arriving personnel found two adolescents trapped in a 16-inch storm water pipe.

"Although the trapped patients were located out of sight of first responders, it was quickly determined both were conscious and alert but unable to escape from the pipe."

How To Winterize Your Lawn and Yard

  How To Winterize Your Lawn and Yard The days may be growing shorter, but the list of lawn and garden chores only seems to grow longer in fall. Take care of these tasks before winter.Aerating the lawn is useful at any time of year, but particularly in fall because it compensates for all the foot traffic the grass endures over the summer. Besides dealing with soil compaction, aeration makes it easier for fall rains to penetrate thatch and for oxygen to reach plant roots.

After the children were located, specialized resources to support confined-space rescues were requested and additional units from Kincora, Fairfax County and Dulles arrived to assist in freeing the trapped adolescents.

The LCFR Facebook statement continued: "Firefighters initially attempted to verbally guide and support the patients in removing themselves but were unsuccessful.

"After losing verbal contact with the trapped adolescents, LCFR personnel initiated a rapid confined space rescue by deploying a single rescuer with back-up rescuers in place to make contact with the two patients and physically removing them."

An LCFR spokesperson said in the statement that the two children were removed at 3:20 p.m. and 3:25 p.m. and both were evaluated at the scene by advance life support providers.

Saginaw Fire Department firefighter Brandon Mulvaney found the stray after locals heard the critter crying from a drain.

Following the rescue, the heroic firefighter said he knew exactly what he would name the kitten—Huntley, after the intersection where he was found.

He previously told Newsweek: "Our four children's names and our dog's name contains Y so it seemed fitting."

"I have never adopted or rescued an animal prior to this from an animal shelter so it was my first experience and I wanted to follow through with it. I felt as though the kitten and I had a very special bond through this process. I called once a week for about two and a half months until I got the approval for adoption," he added.
