Chicago, Jan 25 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A dog survived a freak accident when the owner entered the elevator and accidentally left the dog outside while still holding the lead. The animal was trapped and lifted up as the elevator started moving.
Security cameras at building in Chicago caught the man inside the elevator. He looked increasingly distraught thinking that his pet has been crushed. The outside camera also showed the dog being dragged up as the elevator moved. Fortunately for everyone involved, the lead snapped at the right moment and the animal was dropped to the ground.
As the man left the elevator frantically calling out to the dog, he found the creature not harmed.
During a chat with ninemsn, the unidentified revealed his worst fear at the time. He said that, ”’I was expecting the worst case scenario. I actually almost didn’t want to open the door and see what had happened on the lobby side. I wish I would have let go of the leash, but it all happened so fast that it pulled me in and it was impossible to take my hand out of the strap.”
Last year, a woman in New York was crushed when he dress got trapped by an elevator door.
