A dog has been hailed as a hero after saving the life of its owner on Saturday July 31. The latter collapsed during a walk, due to health problems. The animal alerted the emergency services in its own way.
A woman in her 40s was walking with her faithful 4-legged companion in Sutton-on-Sea , a village in Lincolnshire , England, when the tragedy happened. She fell suddenly and found herself in an unconscious state. When the dog realized that there was a serious danger looming over his owner, he tried to get the attention of rescuers.
To do this, he ran erratically. Arun Gray , RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) team leader noticed the canine’s frantic maneuvering on the usually calm beach, Lincolnshirelive reports.
