Hero dog saves girls

The Cairns Post - - WORLD -

TWO girls are re­cov­er­ing from a light­ning strike af­ter their dog brought help to the moun­tain­side scene in Utah.

Au­thor­i­ties said the girls, aged 8 and 16, were cross­ing a meadow to ex­plore dur­ing a fam­ily camp­ing trip when the light­ning hit.

The Beaver County Sher­iff’s Of­fice said the dog ran back to the camp­site and alerted fam­ily mem­bers. They fol­lowed the dog back to the un­con­scious girls.

The 8 year old suf­fered crit­i­cal in­juries, and the 16 year old suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries. They were later flown to hos­pi­tal.
