A truck driver in California thought he was saving a lost dog. but ended up rescuing an injured elderly man.
Marty Hall Junior says the loyal dog was sitting in the middle of a dirt road and refused to move. So he got out of his truck to assist but then he heard someone calling for help.
It turns out the dog’s owner had fallen down an embankment. Emergency responders rescued the man.
He is doing okay.
A favorite childhood toy is helping an injured turtle on the road to recovery. A couple months ago, workers at the Maryland Zoo found the eastern box turtle in a grassy area in great pain, most likely hit by a car.
Veterinarians at the zoo were able to repair the damages to the shell with bone plates and pins. But they still had one big problem, trying to keep him off the ground since he had fractures on the bottom of his shell.
A custom Lego wheelchair was made. If all goes well, with continued rehab, he should be released into the wild within a year.
