Hero Saves Dog from Being Hurt in Terrifying Elevator Accident

(Video Link)

The dog and his owner walked to the elevator at their apartment building in Springfield, Missouri. The man got on, but the dog didn't. Then the elevator doors closed around the dog's leash. The elevator began moving up, grabbing the leash and slamming the dog against the doors.

Thankfully, maintenance supervisor Brian Ussery was on the scene. He ran to the elevator, grabbed the dog, and broke his leash.

In what must have been an excruciatingly long minute, the dog's owner traveled to the fifth floor, then back down to the first floor to see if his dog was still alive. WGN reports:

Ussery said the dog's owner went to the fifth floor and was expecting the worst when he finally made it back to the first floor.

"The guy was freaking out. He didn't know what he was going to come back to," he said.

The dog's owner was extremely gracious and thanked Ussery for his quick actions. The dog was not injured.
