DOG LEADS OWNER OUT OF TORNADO DEBRIS - “They couldn’t get to me and my dog found a hole, and he came in, and nose-butted me and whining and poking me and I sort of crawled and followed him out of the hole.”
An 8-year-old Corgi-Sheltie mix named George saved his owner from their collapsed home. A tornado in Wisconsin destroyed the camper of George’s owner, Paula Bendixen, and trapped Bendixen underneath some rubble. George managed to crawl through a tunnel-like area, found his owner, and led her outside. Read more from fox11online.com:
When the storm hit, the camper was lifted up off the ground, flipped and landed almost on its roof.
“I heard this really weird loud noise and then everything just started spinning and that’s all I remember until I work up and found myself in here in the dark and calling for my husband. I couldn’t hear him, I thought he was dead. And then I heard him calling for me,” said Paula.
Ed was rescued from the bedroom by a neighbor. He suffered a broken neck along with bumps and bruises.
“I didn’t know what was up or down of if I was on the floor of the ceiling,” said Paula.
Paula was bruised and trapped under debris and extremely disoriented. But little did she know, help was on the way.
