Dog trapped in axle

A Florida couple on their way to the beach is shocked to find a four-legged hitchhiker under the hood.

The dog somehow got trapped between the car's axle and steering mechanism and spent nearly 5 miles there as the couple drove to Dania Beach last Thursday, The Associated Press reported.

Broward County firefighters were called to free the animal, who emerged less than two minutes later without serious injuries.

It's not immediately clear how the dog got stuck under the hood, or if she's a stray.

The dog was taken to Hollywood Animal Hospital, where veterinarians said she was treated for burns on her stomach and legs, Miami TV station WPLG reported.
