Dogs are amazing creatures that can do things that humans are incapable of. This is an example of a case in which a dog saved the life of a woman. Digby, an Australian labradoodle from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, is a defusing dog who assists emergency personnel during trauma therapy sessions.
On Tuesday, June 15, Digby stopped a young lady who was attempting suicide on a bridge above the M5 motorway in Devon, near Exeter, England. Even though police officials spoke with the woman, the situation was getting increasingly dangerous, and they needed to find a solution as soon as possible.
During the tense scenario, one of the fire teams considered introducing Digby to help calm things down, and to their amazement, it succeeded. The woman turned to look at Digby and smiled as soon as he got on the scene, and the discussion was diverted towards Digby and his position in the fire department, which he joined in 2018.
When the woman returned from the bridge, she was asked whether she wanted to meet Digby, and she said yes. According to the media reports, then the lady has been referred to mental health specialists. Digby was showered with love and labeled a “hero” as soon as the news was shared online.
