    An Arizona dog in a two-feet deep canal who couldn't climb out was rescued, but wiggled out of his leash leading rescuers to try to catch him as he ran through traffic. After 30 minutes, a good Samaritan was able to corner him. Fortunately, the dog is micro-chipped and will be returned to its owner.

    "I was in the bedroom," Dallas said. "I heard this big boom and I thought it was an explosion."

    Dallas said she saw the SUV still in her house and still revving, trying to move.

    She said on a typical morning she would be sitting right where the car drove in to her home. Dallas said despite the damage to her home, she is just thankful to be alive and not injured.

    "It's just a blessing to be alive," she said. "I could have been sitting right there on the sofa and it could've been my life."

    Police have not released details on how the crash occurred or if anyone was injured from the car.
