Angel dog pulls lifeless body out of highway

In SANTIAGO, Chile  a new hero is hiding in their midst.  A surveillance camera on a Santiago freeway captured images of a dog trotting past speeding cars to pull the lifeless body of the other canine, which had been run over by a vehicle, away from traffic and onto the median strip.

The scene was broadcast by Chilean television stations and posted on Web sites such as, and hundreds of thousands of people had viewed versions of it by Monday.

Highway crews removed both the dead and live dogs from the median strip of the Vespucio Norte Highway shortly after the Dec. 4 incident. But the rescuer dog ran away. Some people  called the TV stations and offer to adopt the dog, but neither highway workers nor a television crew could find the animal.

People help people -now we know dogs can help other dogs too.
