TRANSIT WORKERS STOP TRAIN TO SAVE DOG - “But instead of ignoring the plight of yet another stray dog, they stopped the train, got out and rescued him.”
An American Eskimo dog named Sparky somehow escaped from his elderly owner and was wandering around on train tracks in New Jersey. Transit workers saw Sparky, stopped the train, and rescued him. Fortunately Sparky has been safely returned home. Read more from ABC News:
Sparky’s adventure began when he accidentally got out of his house in Garfield and ran away.
Lost and confused, a collar-less Sparky made his way to the Garfield train station, wandering the tracks during rush hour.
That’s when the crew on train 1254 heading to Hoboken saw him cowering.
But instead of ignoring the plight of yet another stray dog, they stopped the train, got out and rescued him.
They then took Sparky on the train and brought him to Hoboken.
"I met the train when it came into Hoboken Depot," said NJ Senior Train Master Sean Kushnir. "I secured the dog. Immediately the dog was a big hit, all the passengers were waiting with their cell phones taking pictures."
Sounds like Sparky was rescued by a great group of guys. Click here for the full story and a news video. (Photo from NJ Transit Facebook page)
