Labrador saves baby from drowningA 14 month old Cass County boy was saved from drowning over the weekend by the family dog. Patricia Drauch went to get something from her garage, thinking her 14-month-old son, Stanley was right behind her. She looked behind her and he had gone, so she immediately went to the yard where she saw her son unconscious in the swimming pool.

Her dog was underneath Stanley, propping the boy up on his back so that he was out of the water. Patricia grabbed her son out of the water and finding him unconscious tried calling 911, but was unable to get cell-phone service. She raced to her car, carrying Stanley and began driving to the nearest fire department for help. While on the way, she was able to reach 911 and Stanley awoke.

Good dog! Of course the baby will be lucky it does not develop pneumonia or some other respiratory infection given the condition of that pool. Hopefully he was prescribed some strong antibiotics. That pool should have been drained a long time ago.
