A heart-stopping dashcam video shows the moment that a small white dog tumbles from an open window of an SUV. According to Thursday’s WREG News, the frightening incident took place on Interstate 70 in Colorado on Tuesday.
Erica Robles Kannely utilized Facebook to show the dangers of having windows down with dogs inside – she wrote:
Oh wow! My heart is beating so fast after watching this video that Mike caught while driving on the highway today! This could have been so much worse!! Please share so people can see how dangerous it is to let our dogs look out the window!
Amazingly, despite the dramatic tumble, the dog apparently is okay. The SUV quickly pulled to the shoulder and stopped and against all odds, no cars on the interstate struck the dog.
Many people allow their dogs to enjoy an open window, not realizing that tragedy could strike if the dog loses balance, or decides to jump. Thankfully, in this instance, the outcome did not end in serious injury, or death.
