Hero Dog Tries to Help Mortally Wounded Dog - Chile

Incredible footage of a Chilean dog saving another dog on a dangerous and busy highway in Santiago, Chile, South America.

Translation: "These images seen from the surveillance cameras show a very common situation with our overpopulated highways. It is normal for us to see dogs run over. In the video, we can see this dog fighting for his life because he was run over by the vehicle.

"What is very touching is to see the very heroic actions of this other dog who is trying to pull him to the side of the highway. We are going to keep seeing things like this until we find a solution to the dogs living on the streets."

It seems the truth of this story has been lost in the amount of press its received, due to this it has now been unconfirmed on the dog surviving.

A newspaper reader from Chile said this:

"I read about this video on the paper yesterday and it said the dog that was ran over by the car didn't make it through. It also said that a lot of people called the highway emergency number wanting to adopt the hero dog, but it was left on a street near Costanera an never found again."
