Hero Guide Dog Jumps Into Subway Tracks To Save Blind Man

Are you raising a dog, a dog with work? Seeing a working dog is a wonderful reminder of the thing that dogs are truly human’s best friends. They can comfort you and help you in daily life, especially to those with difficulties. The story below about the brave action of the guide dog will melt your hearts. He doesn’t hesitate to jump into the subway tracks, facing approaching train to rescue his owner- a blind man when he falls on to tracks.

A 60-year-old blind man Cecil Williams was waiting for a train on his way to the doctor early one morning when he began to feel ill and fainted. Unfortunately, he fell from a train platform and onto the tracks.

His black Lab guide-dog, Orlando, took matters into his own hands. He tried his best to keep Williams on the platform, but was not able to.

The brave dog immediately jumped onto the tracks beside him, frantically barking and licking him to try and get him up. At the same time, an express train was approaching them.

Orlando didn’t try in vain. His licking woke Williams up and the blind man was then alerted by a transportation worker to keep his head down. One-and-a-half train cars passed over Williams and

Orlando, and thankfully, they both were OK.

Williams has been blind since 1995 and has had Orlando as his guide dog for eight years. Sadly, he faced losing Orlando, because his insurance would stop covering it.

His community gathered and was able to raise enough money for Williams to keep Orlando, except this time, as a pet. He then welcomed another guide dog to his home, a yellow Labrador named Godiva. Thanks to this, Orlando could live out his days relaxing and getting spoiled. The dedicated guide dog has done an excellent work and now is time for him to relax.

“He’s [Orlando] done work for eight straight years, taking me through New York, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and everywhere, so for him it’s time to retire,” Williams said.
