A man has gone viral on social media after he saved a dog’s life after its leash got stuck in elevator doors.
KAMI learned that the man’s heroic deed was caught on camera and it circulated on social media.
In a report by the Rachfeed, Johnny Mathis, 27, was coming home after his work in Houston, Texas. Mathis lives on the ground floor of the apartment but he had to park his car in the basement. He took the elevator after parking his car, going to his apartment floor.
As soon as Mathis stepped out of the elevator, he noticed the cute dog of the female entering the elevator. He also saw that the leash was long and the dog was not going to make it inside the elevator.
“When she got on, I was looking at the dog, because it was a cute dog. I noticed the leash was kinda long but I didn’t think it wasn’t going to make it on the elevator on anything,” Mathis said.
He also explained that it was his instinct to save the dog. Mathis shared the struggle to remove the lever off the dog because of its fur.
“Instinct just kicked in, I just grabbed that leash. There was so much fur, that’s why it took me a bit to get that lever off the collar and when I did, I let go, you could see that leash just shoot off to the top of the elevator,” he added.
