A guy was at the right position at the right moment to rescue a dog who had been caught in an electrical cord near a motorway overpass.
David Fredman was on his way to work in Independence, Missouri, when he noticed the dog near the I-70 bridge.
“I spotted what seemed to be a dog swinging from the edge of some type of electrical box.” “He was certainly strangled by the cord,” Fredman told Fox4 KC. “His feet were on the earth, but they were barely touching. He was trying to shift his head left and right but couldn’t.”
Fredman instantly contacted 911 and grabbed a knife to liberate the dog. He noticed the dog trying to breathe as soon as he cut the dog free. He couldn’t walk either, so he took the dog to KC Pet Project after calming him down. The dog was microchipped and called Max, and his owner, Dee Vaughn, had been hunting for him. Vaughn was happy when he got news that Max had been discovered only two hours after reporting his dog missing, but he was saddened when he realized what had happened to his 16-year-old dog.
It’s unknown how Max got into this scenario. Was it an accident, or did someone attempt to hang Max on purpose? Vaughn thinks his older dog could not have gone the mile to where he was discovered. However, he told the television outlet that security cameras may expose what happened to his dog. The electrical cord wrapped around Max’s neck obviously signals suspicious behaviour. Vaughn added that he phoned police and was told to contact animal control, which he plans to do.
But he’s simply glad that Max is safe and sound due to Fredman.
He got the chance to greet Fredman in person and responded, “Thank you, David, very much.” You stopped your job to turn back and save my dog’s life.”
