A guy was in the right position at the right moment to save a dog who had become entangled in an electrical cable near a motorway overpass.
David Fredman was on his way to work in Independence, Missouri, when he noticed the puppy near the I-70 overpass.
“I spotted what appeared to be a dog dangling from the edge of some type of electrical box.” “He was certainly strangled by the cable,” Fredman told Fox4 KC. His feet were on the earth, but they were hardly touching. He was trying to shift his head left and right but couldn’t. ”
Fredman instantly dialed 911 and grabbed a knife to liberate the dog. He spotted the dog attempting to breathe as soon as he cut the dog free. He couldn’t walk either, so he brought the dog to KC Pet Project after calming him down.
The dog was microchipped and named Max, and his owner, Dee Vaughn, had been hunting for him. Vaughn was happy when he received word that Max had been discovered just two hours after reporting his dog missing, but he was devastated when he learned what had happened to his 16-year-old dog.
It’s unknown how Max got into this situation. Was it an accident, or did someone try to hang Max on purpose? Vaughn claims his elderly dog could not have gone the mile to where he was discovered.
However, he informed the television outlet that surveillance cameras may expose what happened to his dog. The electrical cord wrapped around Max’s neck certainly suggests suspicious behaviour. Vaughn said he called the police and was told to call animal control. He plans to do that.
But he’s just thankful that Max is safe and sound due to Fredman. He had the opportunity to greet Fredman in person and said, “Thank you, David, so much.” You interrupted your work to turn around and save my dog’s life. ”
