Dog rescued from earthquake rubble in Italy.

NORCIA, Italy -- Rescue workers in Italy made a remarkable discovery on Monday when they pulled a dog from the rubble following this weekend's powerful earthquake.

Video released by Italian firefighters shows the dog being slowly and carefully rescued from the rubble in Norcia.

The 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck Norcia on Sunday morning, leaving 15,000 people homeless and destroying the 14th century Basilica of St. Benedict.

Fortunately, no one was killed or seriously hurt.
