Portland, OR (WDAY TV) -- A woman and her dog have been rescued after falling into a 20-foot-deep sinkhole that opened up in her backyard in Portland, Oregon.

She was trying to find her small poodle mix in the dark when she fell into a sinkhole about 3 ½ feet in diameter.

A neighbor heard her calls for help and phoned 911.

Fire crews used rope and ground ladders to rescue them.

They're both OK.
