The striking video caught by surveillance cameras shows how one legend gets a puppy as it spirals toward the ground at an alarming rate. In the city of Ribeirao Preto in the Brazilian territory of Sao Paulo, Joao Augusto saw a little pooch on the gallery of another level.
The dog was climbing onto the railing of a gallery and yapping when Augusto realized that he needed to do something. The sweet little Shih Tzu, Mel, was in danger of tumbling from the railing and onto the pavement underneath.
The overseer of the building, Paulo Narciso, saw Augusto running and let him in the entryway.
The caretaker said: “I didn’t really understand at the time, I opened the gate and went with the man. We got there and saw that the dog was curled over the railing and was going to fall. I went up to the flat but the owner wasn’t home.”
The puppy slipped from the edge of the balcony and started racing toward the ground at lightning speed. This 100-foot fall could have been lethal had it not been for Augusto. At the point when this legend gets the falling pooch, he scarcely clings to it, however, his grip is sufficient, and the dog is saved.
Joao Augusto Said: “I asked for a towel or a sheet to help in some way, but there wasn’t enough time. Then, she fell from the ninth floor. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to catch her but I was aware that I could cushion the fall. I was on the floor for a few seconds but it was from relief. I think that I was in the right place at the right time. I did what I could, the most I could to help. It was a joint effort with the caretaker who acted quickly to help the dog. It was a happy ending.”
