Man Breaks His Neck And Nearly Freezes To Death, But His Dog Saves His Life

A Golden Retriever named Kelsey just saved his owner’s life after he slipped and fell, breaking his neck on New Year’s Eve. “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 dog’s owner Bob. “By morning my voice was gone and I couldn’t yell for help, but Kelsey didn’t stop barking.”


The accident happened just 15 feet from Bob’s house. The man was in his long johns, slippers and a shirt as he just wanted to get a log for his fireplace. For the next 20 hours, Bob was laying paralyzed in the snow. The temperatures that night were as low as 24 degrees. Thankfully, Bob had his loyal doggie by his side.

“She kept barking for help but never left my side,” said Bob. “She kept me warm and alert. I knew I had to persevere through this and that it was my choice to stay alive.” After 19 hours, Bob lost his consciousness, but Kelsey didn’t give up. “She was letting out this screeching howl that alerted my neighbor. He found me at 6:30 p.m. on New Year’s Day.”

The man was immediately taken to a hospital where he has undergone a surgery. Bob is on his way to recovery and says his dog is a “hero” to whom the man will be forever grateful to for saving his life.
