Hero dog saves girls
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.
