Shannon Lorio crashed her car on a rural road in Georgia. Her life was in danger, but she received help from an unlikely hero. As she lay in her wrecked vehicle, a stray dog approached from out of the woods and came to her aid.
The dog kept her awake and pulled her out of the car, dragging her over 100 feet back to the road. She was able to flag down a passing car before she collapsed unconscious.
After saving Shannon's life in 2010, the stray dog was taken to the Humane Society where he was adopted by canine search and rescue trainer Heidy Drawdy. He was appropriately named Hero.
In the video below, Shannon recounts the events around her rescue by Hero that fateful day.
