Dog hurt dragging owner out of path of oncoming train5/9/2012
An 8-year-old pit bull rescued by a police officer who wanted a companion for his mom has returned the favor in the most selfless way possible. When her owner passed out while crossing a train track in Shirley, Mass., Lilly bravely pulled the unconscious woman out of danger, but ended up being hit by an oncoming freight train herself. The woman escaped unharmed, but the poor pup's price for her courage included a fractured pelvis and an amputated leg. "We've always known she's a special dog," said the woman's son, David Lanteigne. "She's going to be OK, and that's the main thing. This dog is my mother's life."
