How many firefighters does it take to rescue a rat from a drain?

The Auerbach volunteer fire brigade was called in, as was the Rhein Neckar animal rescue team, and together a team of about eight rescuers was able to raise the cover and pull the rat free.

Photos of the rat showed its head and rotund torso poking out of the hole, with its bottom half obscured by the sewer cover.

Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told local outlets, according to the BBC, "She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip - there was no going forward or back".

The rat escaped unharmed, running straight back into the sewer.

The woman, known only as Juliana, said: "When my husband came home, he thought that the rat was just sitting there at first".

A group of volunteer firefighters was then drafted in to help and used their tools to prop up the drainage cover for easier access.

Steinbach says the rat seemed to acknowledge the extraordinary effort to save it, though it is just one of 2,500 rescues his organization undertakes every year.

The young girls who discovered the rat reportedly drew a photo for the rescuers, showing the rat surrounded by hearts.

The internet, as expected, has fallen hard for the portly pest, with Twitter users declaring "We are all fat rat".
