The situation was serious and if it wasn’t for the dog he would have lost his life.

Since there was no one around, Ham started to drag the man by the shirt to help him, as the man was screaming for help the dog started to howl too.

The poor dog tore his foot open while dragging the owner but this didn’t stop him.

The heroic effort of the canine paid off and they got the attention of the neighbours who called the emergency services.

They rushed the man to the hospital and confirmed that he almost died from the accident.
