Injured in a chainsaw accident, a man may have had his life saved thanks to his dog. On Tuesday, December 27, 2022, while cutting logs, this resident of Besse-sur-Issole (Var) cut three fingers with the tool, says BFM Var .
Seeing his owner on the ground, losing a lot of blood, Baila, an 8-year-old Golden Retriever, rushed to him and stimulated him to keep him awake. She threw a ball at him to keep his attention and licked his face several times.
The man felt repeatedly that he was about to pass out. But his faithful companion clung to him to keep him conscious. Eventually the victim was taken care of and transported to Toulon, about forty kilometers away.
After emergency surgery at the hand clinic, the man is out of danger.
