Dog leads tow truck driver to man who’d fallen down embankment

U.S. & World

MARIPOSA COUNTY, CA  (KSEE/NBC News) A loyal dog has proven that she really is man’s best friend.

Tow truck driver Martin Hall, Jr. was driving to a call along a remote dirt road near Coulterville, California when he found the dog blocking his way.

Hall caught the whole story on his cell phone. He tried to feed the dog his peanut butter and jelly 
and share his water but he had no luck.

“That sucks this dog doesn’t come to me, dogs likes me sometimes,” said Hall. 

The dog was in the middle of nowhere. Hall then saw some clues. 

“There was a flashlight on the roadway and a trail here,” said Hall.

As hall investigated the dog still wasn’t warming up. He decided to head out before he heard a faint yelling in the background.

Hall walked closer to the yelling and then saw a man lying in the dirt.

The dog, who was named Chico, led Hall to the man who had fallen down an embankment and was lying there for 10 hours with a broken hip.

Hall was able to get the man help all thanks to the loyalty of man’s best friend.
