tragedy recently played out on the streets of Wuxi in Jiangsu province when a kindhearted woman rushed out to save an injured puppy that was stuck in the middle of the road, only to end up getting run over herself.
Footage posted online by Pear Video shows the injured dog attempting to crawl its way across a busy road on a pedestrian crosswalk as vehicles and motorbikes swerve around the animal. With heavy traffic blocking its way to the other side, the dog then lies down in the middle of the road. All hope appears lost.
But, just then, a middle-aged woman hurries over to rescue the helpless puppy. She waves her hand to signal a truck heading their way to stop. Unfortunately, the truck does not stop or even slow down, smashing straight into the woman carrying the dog, knocking them both to the side and running over the woman’s legs.
Police are now investigating the accident. They have said that by squatting down to pick up the dog, the woman may have been in the driver’s blind spot, though that fails to explain how the driver didn’t see her walking right in front of him on a pedestrian crosswalk in the first place
It’s not clear if the woman sustained any major injuries in the crash, however, at least her effort and sacrifice were not in vain as the puppy reportedly ended up surviving its brush with death.
