Police tried but could not get the three out.
That's when Boca Public works arrived.
They used an underground camera and saw three kittens one of them sleeping in the pipe.
The workers dug a hole to get to the pipe and made the rescue.

Swimming pigs have become a main attraction at the DuPage County Fair near Chicago. But these pigs don't just swim, they race. After jumping into the water and swimming half of a lap, the pigs run around a track to the finish line. The official racing began today when the fair opened. It seems fitting that the theme of this year's fair is "Something to Squeal About."
