People standing beneath an apartment balcony in Tampa, Florida, watched in horror as a dog dangled between the balcony’s slats. According to WFLA News, good Samaritans called the police for help, but until the authorities arrived, it was a terrifying wait.
The people gathered below the dog, along with the responding police officers, decided to take action to ensure that the pup would survive if he fell to the ground below. Someone got a sheet and the good Samaritans held it below the second-story balcony in anticipation of the dog’s fall.
Sure enough, the dog finally fell through the slats – but the sheet caught him and amazingly, the dog was not injured. Cheers broke out in the crowd once it was determined that the pup had survived the harrowing plunge to the ground. One of the witnesses told WFLA, “I’m just thankful that God placed them in the right place at the right time and they were able to save this dog successfully.”
Even though the dog appeared to be okay, someone took him to a veterinarian for a precautionary exam. Great rescue Tampa heroes!!
