This Toddler Nearly Drowned, But This Miraculous Event Saved His Life!
Whenever something traumatizing happens to a child, the first words the parents say are “I only looked away for a second!” It’s true, a toddler is small, fast, and doesn’t know any better! Darting into traffic, crawling into dark spaces, spilling food, breaking things, or even the most terrifying of all – falling into the pool.
That’s exactly the nightmare that Patricia went through when she turned around to find her 14 month old toddler missing. He had been following her, and as most parents say, she only looked away for a second to grab a tool out of the gardening shed. When she found him in the pool, he was floating on the surface with blue lips and his eyes rolled back into his head. When she came closer, she realized that the family dog had put the toddler on his back and made sure not to move so that the toddler would stay above the water.
She didn’t have cell service and had to drive to the local fire station instead of dialing 911. They rushed the child to the hospital where he made a full recovery. Patricia realizes that if it weren’t for their dog, Bear, her child would not be alive.
Dogs notice a lot more than we give them credit for, and this brave dog has really stepped up to the plate when caring for his humans! I hope that Bear lives a long and happy life! As Patricia said, “Bear is more than just a hunting dog.”
