A man who was paralyzed after he slipped and fell in the snow is alive thanks to the heroic actions of his dog. On New Year’s Eve while many were celebrating the start of the new year, Bob was lying in the snow just feet from his home’s door, paralyzed. Around 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Bob was home with his golden retriever, Kelsey, watching football and waiting for the New Year’s Eve programming.
During the commercial break, Bob ran outside of his house in just long jons, slippers and a shirt to get a log for his fireplace. While he was walking outside, he slipped and fell, breaking his neck.
“I was screaming for help but my nearest neighbor is about a quarter mile away and it was 10:30 p.m., but my Kelsey came,” stated Bob. “By morning my voice was gone and I couldn’t yell for help, but Kelsey didn’t stop barking.”
Bob laid paralyzed in the snow with temperatures as low as 24 degrees for the next 20 hours. Kelsey the dog kept Bob warm by lying on top of him and licking his face and hands to keep him awake. Click here for the rest of the story.
