Florida doctor Mohammad Awad just gave us one of the first pieces of good news for 2020: he saved a dog.
“My neighbor just got off the elevator with her dog and right when she got off, I could see the leash was still inside the elevator door,” Awad told CNN.
“It was all slow motion, but it all happened so fast,” he said. “Before I knew it the dog got launched into the air and I jumped into action.”
“I tried to break open the leash on my initial attempt and it didn’t work. I tried to break it with my strength and I just couldn’t do it,” Awad said.
“I re-watched the video and I didn’t feel like it was me in the video, but it happened so naturally,” Awad said, adding he hopes pet owners are always aware of their surroundings to prevent similar situations from happening.
